My runtime program has a setup screen for the user to enter their logo, name and address, etc. These fields are then used as the header in all the reports.

The users would like to be able to change the font in the setup and then use that font in the report headers. Is there a way that the reporyt headers can automatically use the same font that the user entered in the setup?

This is a runtime appl in FMP6. The user cannot change the report layouts. Also, there are many report formats, so creating duplicate formats with different font choices is not an option.

Thanks.

Just make a global the user can change which is to be placed on the report header.

Then have a script do a select all, inserting your report header text, and voila, it is in the user defined font

Yes, I just figured out that it works fine if the user changes fonts. However, not all fields were using the font... Just realized that the fields not using the font are calc fileds... ie. Name (calc of first + last anme) and csz (calc of city & state & zip fields...) DUH!!
