Sending a Box to the Back in Reports

I want to highlight an entire record on my report. I don't want to just change the color of the text box background.  I want to highlight the entire row.  The only I can think of doing this is to create a rectangle box that goes across the entire report.  Then create my Conditional Formatting to change the color of the entire box.  

My question is how can I bring my text boxes to the front or send the rectangle box to the rear.   Right now the text boxes are hidden behind the rectangle box.  I've tried something like this but I get errors.  It won't allow me to setfocus on a report:


Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Me.Box.SetFocus
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSendToBack
End Sub
