    Continous Forms (97)

    Hi,

    When you have a from in continous forms view ( or datasheet - but i dont think you can do what i want in datasheet view), is there a way to have selective formatting on specific records?
    For instance, in a continous form, for those records with a tick box = TRUE could you make just those records text red?

    it would really add a nice touch to my forms. <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48>
    Thanks,

    "Real" conditional formatting was introduced in Access 2000, but there are ways to simulate it in Access 97. See for example Colors and Continuous forms on the Access Web.
