    Unanswered: Alternate backcolor

    I have a continuous form that I am displaying as a subform. I would like to alternate the backcolor so that the records are easier to differentiate. I know I can use me.detail.backcolor, but what conditions do I specify? Sometimes there may be 1 record, sometimes 50.

    Continuous forms are difficult to set criteria for different records.
    Mainly because, in laymans terms, a continuous form is a single form repeated.
    So if you set the background colour for one record, it will set the same back colour for all records.
    There are many examples on using specific fonts to achieve exactly what you need in A97 and 2000.
