changing colors of numeric fields

In MS 2003 or 2002 can anyone tell me the simplist way to change color
of text in a form or report? I want the values of currency fields
changed to red if the amount is >= to $1,000. I am not a programmer!

I can't find this anywhere, so I hope it can be done: Here's what I can do so far: 1. Certain fields have a class 'textfield' while others are 'textfieldreq'. 2. OnSubmit checks all elements and makes sure that those with 'req' have some value

I have a form that has the user pick the type of question he will answer. The input field will be a text, numeric or date type.

HI In a previous versino of one of our apps we would store numeric values such as 16777088 which we used to set the grid colors of a job on a TrueGrid grid in VB6. Now in VB.Net we are using the DataGrid and cannot convert these integer values to System.Drawing.Brush values.

Hi All: I'd like to fill a set of controls with colors (by probably setting control.backcolor) that are changing gradually - e.g. start from dark green and endup with lightgreen. How can I do this? I suppose I will need to use the Hex values for the colors? Any help will be much appreciated!
