I have a simple continuous form.

It shows 3 fields (1) product code  (2) group  (3) selling price.

The form header has no data - just headings.  Therefore not relevant.

How do I : Display the selling price in GREEN where the group ="XX".

(Where so I put this code?  Do I relate it to an EVENT on the form??)
