    Default Colours in Forms & Reports (Access XP)

    Does anyone have any way of altering default colours in Forms & Reports. I need to wear glasses, and have difficulty working with the colours used as standard. In particular, I always have grid lines showing, and I find that positioning labes, text boxes etc is pretty tricky.

    I know that Tools Options gives me the chance to change the defaults for tables, but not for forms or reports.

    I'm just going to play with templates to see if that will help.

    Actually, in Tools/Options on the Forms/Reports tab there are fields for a Form template and a Report template. Any form you design from scratch will use the settings for that form as a default. So create a form that uses the colors, fonts, and spacing that you like, save it, and then import it into any database you work on and set it as the template - it works on a database basis.

    Thanks

    I had planned to give that a try, but I hadn't had time to play with it yet.

    Hope I can change colour of keyline borders. That on its own would be a big help.
