Re: How do I format a column's font type in qlikview?

Hi

You cannot change the font type for a column, it will always be the type you specified for the object in the Fonts tab.

You can change the font size, decoration (italics/underline/bold) and colour using custom cell formats, or the decoration and colour using the expression attributes (click the + next to the expression on the Expressions tab to see the attributes).

Right click the object and select Custom Format Cell to create a custom format for a column. You may need to set "Always Show Design Menu Items" on the Design tab of User Settings before this option will show up in the drop down menu)

Correction - "Always Show Design Menu Items" isn't necessary.

On the other hand, you will have to enable "Design Grid" in the View menu, before the object will show an entry "Custom Format Cells" in its right-mouse button menu.

Weird, but that's the way it is.

in expression tab for that column click on + icon in text format write

'<b>//For bold

or you can write separately or combined like this form  in separate column

'<i><u><b>

you can change font type or size on font tab for all

Can we change font size for one column just like setting <b> in font format?

Thanks.

No.

AFAIK the only formatting options are <b>, <u> and <I>. Much like the old html tags.
