Conditional Formatting in Access 2003

I recently installed Access 2003 and immediately noticed problems with
applications that work fine in 2000 and XP. I use conditional
formatting on continuous forms for a number of reasons. When these
forms are opened in 2003, Access seems to go into a continuous loop.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone know of a
solution short of not using conditional formatting in continuous
forms?

Here is an example:

Does that happen always, or unpredictably?

There's a set of conditions that it applies to.

From memory, it it has to be a calculated field that is being conditionally
formatted, and the formatting seems to trigger a recalc, which triggers a
reformat, which triggers a recalc, which ...

Search groups.google.c om for posts by Stephen Lebans on this issue. I think
he suggested that you can avoid the issue by assigning the conditional
formatting through code instead of through the interface?

Does anyone know a way you can use conditional formatting to create a banded style view as is commonly seen on the internet. (In othe words the first record appears on a gray background, the 2nd on white, the third on gray etc etc.) I could write an expression based on the odd/even status of the primary key but this wont work when sorting and filtering is applied. Any suggestions gratefully received.

I have many text fields with conditional formatting applied, specifically when the condition is "Field Has Focus". Without any events associated with the fields the conditional formatting works perfectly. However, I have code that runs under the ON CLICK event. The code changes the focus to other controls, which means the conditional formatting is no longer displayed. This part makes sense to me. Here's what doesn't make sense. The last...

A comment and a question To anyone who is using conditional formatting, beware that in Access 2007 the color pallette is not the same as the color pallette in Access 2003. So if you have a particular color you were using as a standard throughout your application, the only way to continue using that color is to code the color. Anyone else notice how forms in Access 2007 display the conditional formatting much slower than in Access...
