Hi, guys
I have five different sub forms in a main form in Access. They are all in datasheet view. My problem is that I need to change background color of a particular cell when its data meet a pre-defined condition while it is being updated by user.
I dont' know is it possible to do so in datasheet view? Please help me.
Thanks a lot

I don't think that is possible without addons.

Hi, guys
What I' am allowed to do is using the standard controls which are available in MS Access only. Is there any other way to get my job done?
Please help me.
Thanks a lot

  Another thing you can use, which is native to Access is a continuous form.  It can be made to look like a datasheet and you can control colors with conditional formatting or other techniques.

Hi, guys
The continuous view will help solve the colors matter. However, it doesn't show me the record selector like the one in datasheet view (the record selector is just beside the datasheet and helps highlight the entire row when selected).

I'm still struggling looking for the solution to get my job done.
Please help me

  Sure it does.  Just make sure the forms Record Selector property is set to true.

That record selector doesn't highlight the entire row like the one in datasheet view does.

Hi, guys
The conditional formatting is working well with the datasheet view. I got my work done.
Thanh all of you.
