Changing the properties of controls on continuous form

P: n/a
I have a continous form that displays each record in the recordset as
a line of textboxes containing data. I wanted to make certain lines
appear red based on critera in the record. Is there any easy way to
do this?

Yes, select the text box and go to:

Format -> Conditional Format

and select the conditions that apply to you.

Is that a feature of versions of Access greater than Access 2000? I have
needed to do that many times; I looked at my database (Access 2000) but
conditional formatting is not an option that I can see.

Access 2000 was the first to have it. Look again.
