    Hi there..I was wondering if there is a feature in Access whereby one can
    highlight the user input text in the results of a search?

    Hi Spart - not exactly sure what you mean by input text in the results of a
    search, but on a Form or a Report you can use the Conditional Formatting to
    change the formatting based on the cursor being in the field (form), by the
    either the Value of the field or an expression in the field (Form and
    Report).
    Was this what you meant?

    Hi..thanks for the prompt reply!

    What I'm trying to do is give the results of a search the same 'look and
    feel' of a web based search..so you have the words that the user used
    highlighted in yellow in the form reults text box

    NO!
    You can highlight the entire field depending if a value is anywhere
    within that field, but not the value itself.

    I had this same need... (like in a google search how it will highlight the
    word...) I don't know if access does it but what I did was use
    A2KConditionalFormattingVer27.mdb (www.lebans.com) and used
    clsConditionalFormattingDataSheetView

    It highlights the row where the search item is found. If you get an answer
    that is different maybe I'll change mine!
