I don't think you can change the datasheet view column color. If you want color, use continuous form instead.

No way to change the back color of a datasheet view.. Sorry. .You could always write an ActiveX component and use it there...

to MasseyM,
     I can change the back color of the datasheet by DatasheetBackColor property but it change the datasheet background color not each column.
     Thank you for your answer.

You can not in datasheetview have different colours for each coulumn. Use continious forms instead.

Don't waste your time reinventing the wheel.  Use a grid control like the one that comes with Sheridan Data Widgets 3.0
