    Setting Background colours (Access 2003 xp sp3)

    Can someone look at this form for me and see how the fields change colour according to the delivery checkbox. I know I set it up a few years back but I cannot find it anywhere in the code. I want to add another colour setting and it's driving me nuts! Its tied to the setting of the DelDocked checkbox in the original table.

    I will very appreciative of any help!

    You have used conditional formatting.

    It's done through Conditional Formatting:
    - Open the form in design view.
    - Select a control, for example the Job# text box.
    - Select Format | Conditional Formatting...
    - Look at the existing condition.
    - Click Add>, etc.

    Thankyou!!!

    I haven't looked at that for so long (obviously since I did it) that I had forgotten all about it.
