# Highlight Expert

Posted on 2005-04-07

Does anyone know if its possible to select multiple items and then use the Highlight expert.  I have about 30 formulas that I want to apply the exact same highlighting for.  Each highlight has 4 conditions, seems like doing each one by hand is a little too much of a pain.

I have tried to select muliple items in the report, but the highlight expert is greyed out.

Any help would be most appreciated!!!!

You can select multiple formulas and set the same property conditionally, such as background color, font, border, etc.
This will allow you to set the formatting condition on multiple fields at the same time.

Right click one of them and choose Format Field.
For background color, click the Border tab.
Click the X+2 button to the right of background.
In the editor, enter something like the following:

if condition1 = true then
crYellow
else
crNoColor

Save and Close

Ok, I tried this out and used a nested if then else statement.  Here is my statement below.

if {@% Spent Bank Fees} >= 1.00 then
crRed
else
If {@% Spent Bank Fees}>= .75 then
crMaroon
else
If {@% Spent Bank Fees} = 0 then
crBlack
else
If {@% Spent Bank Fees} <= .50 then
crLime
else
If {@% Spent Bank Fees} <= .74 then
crOlive
else
crNoColor

Now....I have the same problem.  I have to create a specific snipet of code for each item.  I have over 30 formulas and will have to use this code above and each time change the formula value...... such as the one in my example.  {@% Spent Bank Fees}

How do you think I should get around this problem?

thanks,

You can use CurrentFieldValue function and I would also use a Select Case structure to make it easier to read:

select CurrentFieldValue
case is >= 1    : crRed
case is >= .75 : crMaroon
case 0             : crBlack
case is <= .50 : crLime
case is <= .74 : crOlive
default            : crNoColor
