Font color change based on date value > 1 year.

I'm new to Actuate Reporting and would appreciate some advise. I am trying to change the font color on data fields that are older than one year.

My code below is in the content frame properties of the table value field (CF_S_EVT_ACT.TODO_ACTL_END_DT -as date) that I would like dependant on the date.

The error is pointing to my date field. Error message is:
NewReportApp::Frame3::CFSEVTACTTODOACTLENDDTControl%OnRow%AcDataRow(3):  Illegal variable use. - (CF_S_EVT_ACT)  
NewReportApp::Frame3::CFSEVTACTTODOACTLENDDTControl%OnRow%AcDataRow(3):  Operator not found for these types.  
2 Semantic Error(s) found  

Sub OnRow( row As AcDataRow )
    Super::OnRow( row )
    If  DateDiff("YYYY", CF_S_EVT_ACT.TODO_ACTL_END_DT, Date()) > 1 Then
        Font.Color = red
    End If
End Sub

Thank You in advance, Dale
