    try adding code to the report section's Format event to read the value in
    the control(s) and set the control BackColor accordingly. for instance, if
    your control is in the report's Detail section, try something along the
    lines of

    Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

    Select Case Me!MyControl
    Case "something"
    Me!MyControl.BackColor = 111
    Case "something else"
    Me!MyControl.BackColor = 237
    Case Else
    Me!MyControl.BackColor = 555
    End Select

    End Sub

    the above assumes that "MyControl" has a Text data type. see the Select Case
    topic in Help if you're not familiar with it.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
