Experts,

I have a subform in datasheet view and I want field: LineNo to grey out if field: Submitted is checked.  I know I need to go to design view, click on LineNo field and go to conditional formatting and enter in a certain formula, but I cannot get the formula to work--I think I just need the proper syntax.  I've been trying: "Submitted"=True , but it is not working...?

Help!
