I have an Outlook form. I need to format one of the labels with two different font colors as follows:

Name *

Where the text is in black while the asterisk is in red to show that this is a mandatory field.

Or

Have a portion of label text in bold as follows:

Name (Mandatory)

Is there any way to accomplish this?

You can use two labels overlapping. You can use different fonts/font sizes if needed. Group them together so you can move them easily, if needed.

I want to say there is a way to do it with one field... but it's either not using label or you need to use code behind the form (most likely). I'm pretty sure it was on outlookcode.com - which is now defunct. :(
