Can anybody give insight on this.. The following vba codition works correctly EXCEPT for the backcolor of the text field.. the result of Any rgb changes the backcolor result is Black. When I shut off the conditionns the backcolor goes back to white but when clicking my condition button the Forecolors work (blue,pink,purple) but the background color stay at black.. I wanted it yellow RGB(255, 255, 0)..

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim fcd1 As FormatCondition

If Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions.Count > 0 Then
MsgBox "Conditional format already exists."
Exit Sub
End If

Set fcd1 = Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions.Add(acExpression, acEqual, "Date()>=[trialstartdate] And Date()<=[trialenddate] And [contractstatus]='Unsigned'")
Set fcd1 = Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions.Add(acExpression, acEqual, "date() > [TrialEndDate] And [ContractStatus] = 'Unsigned'")
Set fcd1 = Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions.Add(acExpression, acEqual, "[contractstatus]='signed' Or [contractstatus]='N/A'")

With Me![Contact1First].FormatConditions(2)
    .FontBold = True
    .FontItalic = True
    .FontUnderline = False
    .BackColor = True
End With

Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(0).ForeColor = RGB(72, 61, 139)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(0).FontBold = True
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(0).BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(0).BackColor = True


Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).ForeColor = RGB(255, 62, 150)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).FontBold = True
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).BackColor = True


Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(2).ForeColor = RGB(255, 0, 255)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(2).FontBold = True
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(2).BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(2).BackColor = True

You're setting the backcolor twice?

Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(1).BackColor = True


...and ultimately to -1

What happens if you remove the lines:

Me.Contact1First.FormatConditions(0).BackColor = True

?
