I want a rounded corner rectangle that has been infilled then a text box put
inside that which will be white, but this text box also needs to have rounded
corners to follow the rounded corner coloured border I have created

What version Publisher?
You can create an rounded corner autoshape, right-click, add text. The text will not
follow the contour of the rounded corners.
There are workarounds, takes a bit of doing.
Try this:
In autoshapes, basic shapes, create the crescent. Using the rotate handle and wrap
tools adjust the shape to fit into your rounded corner. Copy, paste, flip for each
corner... Give the shapes no color, no line.
Bring the shapes to the front. Your text will follow this contour.

version Publisher 2003, cant' see for looking to find this option on text boxes

Hi many thanks but I don't want the text to follow the contour, I just want
the text box not to have square corners, rounded ones to match the filled in
rectangle border behind. ?? Many thanks

Can't have a rounded text box... Publisher doesn't have that option.

But you can type text into some of the autoshapes, i.e. a box with rounded
corners!

Many thanks but I'm trying to achieve a white text box with rounded corners
as this is layered on a coloured autoshape with rounded corners

Doesn't matter if the autoshape has rounded corners, the text inside remains square.
