    Unanswered: How do you Highlight Years using Conditional Format in Access 2013?


    How would I create a conditional format in an Access 2013 form field to highlight a year greater than 2016 or dates greater than 12/31/2016?

    I did this, but it is highlighting all dates.

    Field Value is Greater than 2016

    Highlight Red

    Appreciate the help. Thanks.

    highlight all dates...
    are you by any chance using continuous forms?

    what expression have you tried?

    a quick test in A2010 suggests setting a rule

    where the value of the column/control is greater than CDate("31/12/2016") shoudl work, assuming that the source column is a date time column

    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Or...instead of Field Value, use Expression Is:

    Expression Is


    If you don't want to hard wire the year...but wanted to highlight dates in future years (i.e. current year is 2016...highlight years 2017, 2018, 2019, etc.)

    Expression Is
