Conditional formatting

Hi,
I want to use the conditional formatting in access to highlight records in a subform. The subform default view is Continuous Forms. The conditional format is set to field PERSNUMBER.
This field is stretched over the entire width of the form.
The backstyle of PERSNUMBER is Normal, all the other fields are set over the field PERSNUMBER in frontposition and the backstyle is transparant.
When i open the form and i select PERSNUMBER then the whole line disapear and get the color of the conditional formatting.
What i'am doing wrong?

So when your CF fires, you see the color that you've set for the PERSNUMBER field, and you cannot see your other fields?

Are you absolutely sure that you have enforced that PERSNUMBER is set to "Bring to Front"?

Other than that, you might consider setting the CF values in each of your controls to format the BackColor of those controls.

All the other fields are set to front.
I used the following website.

As soon as you set the focus to that control it will be brought to the front and the other text boxes not visible.  Set that control to locked = Yes and Enabled = No.
