Hi :)
Only in Forms and Reports.  Not in the data (Tables) or in the Queries.

I haven't used Base yet and don't really know so this is just guessing from my impression of what 
goes on ... 
I think you are meant to use Writer or Calc to "connect to" or "link to" the Queries in Base.  Then 
you use fields in much the way you would "mail merge".  That means you can apply normal formatting 
to the fields or the text and stuff around that in the rest of the Writer or Calc document.  

Does this link describe how to do that?

There was this link on the main LibreOffice website

I hope to start reading this quick guide or handbook that is in the process of being translated 
from the original that was written in German
The chapter "Linking to Databases" is the other way around.  It's about using external tables in 
MySql or PostgreSQL rather than having the tables in the internal back-end.  

I get confused around then but i think Base then 'just' has the queries and the relationships 
between the tables.  Then Base feeds into Forms and Reports created in Writer.  So Base is a bit 
like a bridge?  
Regards from 
Tom :)

I´m a Libreoffice user and I´d like to use italics and bold in Base. Is it
possible? It would be so important to me.

Soy un usuario de Libreoffice y me gustaría usar la cursiva y negrita en el
programa Base.

Thanks in advance,
