Hi!
I need to make a conditional formatting of a query (using Expression Builder). I want to show the positive values with green and the negative with red. I don't want to use forms but only the default query result view of MS Access. Is it possible?

Set the format for the column in the query to something like:
#.00[Green];#.00[Red]
