    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.
