Changing Font Color for Yes/No fields in Reports

Is there a way to change the font color for different values when you run reports?  I would like boxes that are marked with a check and read "True" in the report to print one color and boxes not marked with a check that read "False" to be a different color.

Not an option to have conditional controls in reports - I can in Word templates -

It may be possible in reports with some scripting. I haven't tried it, but you might ask Roy at http://www.techbenders.com/

What you want should be possible but it involves some fairly tricky scripting.

Hmmm...interesting.  Unfortunately, I am not a script-writer of any sort.  Thanks though!!  It would have been beneficial to have different colors, but we can manage with plain black too.  Thanks for your help.

If you really want it, Roy does create work with Reports (for the right price) :-)
