Error in File  C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\temp_a1312633-eaf1-4fa9-a1e0-b62104b1863c.rpt: Error in formula  <Section_Back_Color>. 'If {ID} = 'Directs' then ' This field name is not  known.

If {ID} = 'Directs' then
   crSilver
else
   crNoColor

Ok I got that part. But what if I want just the text highlighted not the background?

If {item.ID} = 'Directs' then
   crSilver
else
   crNoColor
