Posted on 2011-02-16

I've got a report that displays a number of rows of data with multiple data items per row.

I need to apply conditional formatting to a row that will change the forecolor of the row to red if the end date is within 6 months of the current date.

I have found the place in Access where you configure the conditional formatting and I can tell that need to use the 'Expression Is' condition, but I'm not sure how to build my expression in order to get my desired result.

Thanks for help

expression is datediff("m",[end date],Date())<=6

or maybe this


expression is datediff("m",[end date],Date())>=6
