I have a numbers formula used in invoice generation:

="Invoice terms: "&CONCATENATE(Terms)&", please pay by ..."

Which returns:

Invoice terms: 14 days, please pay by ...

Is there a way to apply a style to only part of the formula? I want the outputted "Invoice terms" to be bolded:

Invoice terms: 14 days, please pay by ...

Is this possible?

It doesn't seem to be possible. While you can format the characters in a text cell individually, the format option of a formula cell applies to the whole cell. – fanaugen Apr 19 '12 at 9:34

Formats apply to entire cells and cannot be applied to only part thereof. Can you not put "Invoice terms:" in a different cell?
