Crystal Reports : Background Color

crystal 8.5

I want to highlight records in pairs (so, for example, record 1 and 2 are green, 3 and 4 are white, 5 and 6 are green)

i have
if RecordNumber mod 2 = 0 then color(148,233,196)
else
color(255,255,255)

which gives me every other record... how to i get it to color by pairs of records?

thanks

Try this:

if RecordNumber mod 4 in [0,1] then color(148,233,196)
else
color(255,255,255)

bingo!

thanks ;)

does [1,2] represent the array positions for RecordNumber?

No, it represents the remainder value that the MOD function returned.
