OK, apart from the fact that you've specified black as the backcolour rather than white I don't see a major mistake - the colour should still have changed.

Perhaps you're working with an instance of the form, and an object variable, and in this case you accidentally used the form name?

e.g.

Dim frmX As frmMain
Set frmX = New frmMain

frmX.SomeButton.BackColor = vbWhite

frmMain.BackColor = vbWhite '<-wrong,
frmX.BackColor = vbWhite '<-correct

?

Craig, I don't understand how wsh2's suggestion solved your problem?

In your question you state that you do:
batches.backcolor = &h0&

But, when you try that
"it is not changing"

That doesn't make sense. The form should have changed, except it should have gone black instead of white.

So from the premise that you gave us correct information in your question it logically follows that wsh2's answer cannot be the correct answer to solve your problem.

Not at all, Craig, I didn't mean to come across like that. I was genuinely confused as I couldn't work it out.

Thanks
