This sample db demonstrates a continuous form featuring:
        (a) Key Navigation (Datasheet Style)
        (b) Graded Highlighting Of Multiple Selected Records
Pattern of Highlighting:
        (a) Current record (whether fully selected or not) - Light Blue.
        (b) Other records, which form part of current selection block - Orange Yellow.
        (c) Other records, which were selected at any time earlier in current session -
             Light Purple.
        (d) All highlights other than that for current record can be undone by dbl 
             clicking any row.
    4.3 - Selection of records:
        (a) Single record - Click on record selector.
        (b) Multiple records at a time - Click on record selector of top desired record 
             and drag the mouse to record selector of bottom desired record. 
             (Alternatively, you can hold down shift key and then click the record 
              selector for bottom desired record, or use Dn Arrow key to expand the 
             selection suitably). 
 
  Note - (a) Using Up/Dn arrow keys alone, when a group of records is in selected 
                  state, moves the whole selection mask accordingly
             (b) List of primary key values for records that have been selected so far 
                  (even if not in current selection) is stored in form's global variable named 
                  SelectList.
             (c) For a given file (Access 2000 file format), performance of dynamic 
                   conditional highlighting is found to be much better in Access 2003 
                   installation. In case of Access 2K & XP installations, there is noticeable 
                   time lag for final rendering of conditional colors to take effect. (In the 
                   mean time, for a brief transient period, all existing colors appear to get 
                   lost temporarily).
             (d) Form's KeyPreview property should be set to Yes.
