Anyone has a quick formula that will display the Details of a certain group header with 2 colors, alternating each other?
I want the odd's to be in white and the even's to be in gray (or something like it).
My formula dosn't work, and I'm not sure what to use for it.

Thanks,

Gian

If Remainder(GroupNumber, 2) = 0 Then
   gray
Else
   white

Or

If (GroupNumber Mod 2) = 0 Then
   gray
Else
   white

I think this is actually marginally faster because it does integer math instead of real numbers.
