    I have been working on a fillin form and have been finding that when I highlight the REF field and bold it, that the text will bold. It is when I lock the form and enter new data that only the first word in the field will get bolded. Is there something I am missing or else I can do that will fix this problem? I tried to post the file, but I do not have permission to load .dot files.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Try checking off the "preserve formatting during updates" check box when setting up the fill-in field. It puts in a mergeformat into the field code which will maintain the format of the field.
