I have a datalist which is loaded at run time from Access. What I am trying to do is when I click on a button will execute a SQL query to another database and if any of the data returned from the SQL query toggle the background color of the matching item in the datalist. So once the SQL query runs it will search the datalist for a match and then if it finds one then it will colorcode it.

You can not play with the background color of perticular Item in the Listbox or Dropdowncombo box
for the webpage
 <asp:ListItem></aspListItem> is the control for the item in the ListBox and DropDownCombo box
and  <asp:ListItem> doesn't have the Backcolor attribute or similar to that
so you can change whole background color of Listbox or DropdownCombobox but can not change color or Item

sorry
thanx

You can use GridView

and keep that GridView with Single columns. and make Design like Listbox
u can change color of cells or gridview as per the returned value of SQL
if u are good designer too then u can Design GridView as like as ListBox
