This sample illustrates how to change the color of a control on a form based on information in the form. In this case, if Check 14 checkbox is checked, then the values of Desc will be red, otherwise it will be blue. You can also check for values in text boxes. For instance, if JanBal <500 it could be blue, other wise red.

A second form shows how to change the background color of a text control in a continous form, based on a value in each record.

For higher versions (Access 2000+) see my sample ConditionalFormatting.mdb.
