Thread: [Solved] Concatenate and bold

    I have the following forumula in a cell: "=CONCATENATE(B154," - ",VLOOKUP(B154,LabCat04,2,FALSE), " Actual")". I would like to put the word "Acutal" in bold, but can't figure out how to do it. When I select the word, the "bold" icon is greyed out.

    Is it possible to do this?

    You could do this using Conditional Formatting.

    Software: OpenOffice 3.0/NeoOffice 3.0 on Mac OS X 10.5.6

    Old, slow, and confused - but at least I'm inconsistent!

    You can't bold the text using a formula, but you can use Conditional Formatting.

    Select the cell you want to format then click on Format>Conditiona Format

    Select "Cell Value Is" then "Equal To" Then type in ="Actual" in the last box, then click on the format button to set the text to bold if it meets the criteria.
