Regarding text formats in SAP

Hi,

There is a requirement that in SAP R/3 Long text screens for a transaction it is possible to format the text (Bold, Underline), but same is not reflecting in the texts in normal Text type fields, Print preview and the Print outs of the same transaction..

Please suggest me if there is any function module available for formatting or if any badi is available or any possible way.

Thanks,

Swarna Munukoti

    The formatting of normal database text fields in a report is determined by coding in that report - the WRITE statement used to output the field has a number of formatting options. You cannot change the format of this output by any type of control string in the field value.

    Long texts are printed using a different mechanism, and support a variety of paragraph and character formats which can be triggered by control codes in the text.

      Thanks Andrews,

      But is it possible to get that text format in BOLD in printform.

      Is it possible to change the style?
