    Question Formatting in a Report

    I have an access report that pulls data from an outside database.

    Instead of using labels (because its hard to line them up properly) with the text box fields I have created an expression to include the label I need inside - For example: ="Name: " & [CONTACT_NAME]
    Is there a way to use the conditional formatting to change the font color of just "Name" or just the data [CONTACT_NAME] or will it always apply to the whole field?

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm curious as to why you think they're hard to line up?
