    Unanswered: Just wondering if anyone knew how to do this

    I'm adding a streamlined email notification system to my database. The form that I've designed (based on my employee table) simply has a checkbox and a textbox containing an employees name. The default view for the form is Continuous Forms, so I get a nice list of employees and the user can simply check off which people he'd like the email to go to.

    What I'd like to do is highlight the names that have been checked as well as tick off the checkbox. I tried putting some code in the On Click event of the checkbox to change the BackColor property of the textbox. Unfortunately, this changes to color of all the textboxes (because they are the same control, in essence).

    Not a major issue, but I think this would come in handy for some of my users who have their monitor's resolution set high. Checkboxes are pretty small you know.

    Thanks!

    Look at the Conditional Formatting ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...
