    Hi

    I am trying to set conditional formatting in my report, I have read most of
    the posts both here and on other websites and I don't think my conditrional
    formatting is working correctly. I would like to colour the box red if the
    PV appears within the text and green background if CF appears within the text.


    Suggestions of:- Expresssion is - Like "*PV*" dont work I show an error of
    The expression you entered contains invalid sytax, you may have entered a
    comma with a preceding identified.

    In other posts I have read about the setting of On Focus - I don't have this
    I only have field value & Expression is.

    I am using Access 2003 - am I missing something? do I need to install
    something extra?

    Thanks very much

    Kerry

    Kerry,

    Like is an operator that requires an expression on both sides. Try in the
    expression:

    [YourField] Like "*PV*"

    Hope that helps.
