Set up a global variable in a module that will be toggled on and off, Say:

Public rptBkGnd As Boolean

In the report detail On Format Event put:

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

     Select Case rptBkGnd
          Case True
               Me.Section(0).BackColor = 16777215 ' White
               rptBkGnd = False
          Case False
               Me.Section(0).BackColor = 12632256 ' Gray
               rptBkGnd = True
     End Case

End Sub

Just one additonal note to Brian's suggestion.  OnFormat can get fired off multiple times if Access retreats up the page, so wrap the code he gave you in a check like this:


  If FormatCount = 1 then
   'Brian's code here
  End If

  This way, your background color will only toggle once.
