Microsoft Access Continous forms formatting

I have a contious form (not a subform) and I want to format certain records in the form, color blanks etc. I don't want to use conditional formatng. There are about 80 fields in each record and 6 condtions per field. It runs VERY slow with CF. I have tried a VB module being called from the data query. It is great for calcs but when I turn a field red in 1 record it turns the field red in  that field in all records displayed.

I believe conditional formatting is the only method you desire on FORMS.  Reports are different for they have a ON FORMAT event per detail line that provides a means for your type of coloring.
