I'm trying to re-create the conditional formatting of a field on a form (that is shown in datasheet view) in code, because I want a specific background color that can't be selected in the conditional formatting popup.
However, when I set conditional formatting in code, this field is set to this new custom background color on all the rows of the datasheet, even the ones for which the expression is false.
The attached image shows the Conditional formatting that works perfectly (but with the wrong color) and the attached code shows the conditional formatting that looks perfectly (but on all the rows).
Can you help me?
One remark: the field I'm using for conditional formatting is a drop down combobox where the text in the second column determines which background color should be used for the field. I don't know if this is important, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.
Dim objFrc As FormatCondition
Dim lngBlue As Long
lngBlue = RGB(159, 210, 254)
Set objFrc = Me![FieldName].FormatConditions.add(acExpression, , (FieldName.Column(1) = "SomeTextString"))
.BackColor = lngBlue
