    Angry Unanswered: change background style

    I created an access form with form wizard and using one of style as background. for example style is international , after the form created, I would like to change it to rice paper.

    And I don't want to start over to create the report again, for I've already made a lot changes based on the wizard created report

    But cannot findout how to change it, picture is bitmap, picture type is embedded.

    There is an icon in one of your tool bars called Auto Format. It looks like a piece of paper with a wand in the bottom left hand corner.

    If you hover your mouse over an icon it will show you the name of the icon.

    Background colors

    Here's an example (probably not what you want as it doesn't change the background to an image) but it does allow the user to change the starting left side color and transition to the right side color on the form. The form is called Enter Hours and has a button which pulls up the color schematic for windows using an API call.

    I thought you might find it helpful (open the database using the shift key as it is configured with linked tables.)

    It might also have some other stuff you may find useful.
