Detail Header Format

Detail Header Format

I can't seem to get the detail header formatting to work in 2010, I want to turn the backcolor to yellow if the "balance" is > 80 and if "SumOfPto" <80. Whatever I do, I always get the white background.

Dim LngWhite As Long
Dim LngYellow As Long

LngYellow = RGB(255, 255, 0)
LngWhite = RGB(255, 255, 255)

If (Me![Balance] > 80 And Me![SumOfPTO] < 80) Then
Me![SumOfPTO].BackColor = LngYellow
Me![SumOfPTO].BackColor = LngWhite
End If

I've done this in older versions of Access, I've tried all types of options.

Any ideas, thanks.

Thanks for the help.

RE: Detail Header Format

Have you tried Conditional Formatting since it doesn't require any code?

Make sure the background is not set to Transparent.

Is the code running in the On Format event of the section of the report as the controls?

RE: Detail Header Format

Followed your advice and used conditional formatting and was able to get it to work. Thanks for pointing it out.

Thanks for the help.
