Continuous forms background colour

P: n/a
Is there any way in which I can have the background colour of one or more
records set to the colour stored in a datafield within the record?

You can change the background colour of the detail section of a continuous
form, but not for just one record. You can, however, use conditional
formatting to change the for/back colours of some/all controls of records
that satisfy the defined conditions.

At what event do you activate the conditional formatting? I tried "on
current" but that seems to impact badly on performance.

If you have Access 2002/XP/2003, use the Format menu, select conditional
formatting, and follow the prompts. This will change the color/font/etc of
controls. See the Access help for conditional formatting.
