Alternating Roq Colours (with a catch)

I know how to alternate row colours with the following script in the conditional background:
if remainder(recordnumber,2) = 1 then
crwhite
else
crSilver

Open in new window

However, with each group, it's a gamble as to whether or not the first record of that group will be white or silver.  Is there anyway I can make sure that the first row of a group always has a background of white (and alternates from that point)?

I generally create a running total in this case (using the running total wizard) that increments the count for each record in the group and resets the running total every time the group changes.

I then change the formula to something like:

if remainder({#RunningTotal,2) = 1 then
crwhite
else
crSilver
