    Datasheet Formatting Limitations

    I'm using Access 2013.

    Is it possible to vertically align text in datasheet cells? Can different columns have different text sizes?

    Thanks.

    the vertical property works for form, but not a datasheet. Datasheets having limited facilities for formatting which affects the whole sheet. However you can make a continuous form look like a datasheet and with some vba create options for resizing etc so you can get access to all the normal form formatting. The only thing you won't be able to do is have rows of different heights - as with a datasheet.

    With conditional formatting you change back and fore colors plus bold/italic/underline which with the right condition can set a whole column, but not font size
