How to highlight textboxes on continuous form using Got Focus/Lost Focus in access?

I set up my textboxes to highlight when On Got Focus and then change back to white On Lost Focus on my continuous form. The problem I notice is that when it highlights the textbox for the particular row it does the same for all of the rows.. Is there a way to highlight just within the detail row that the box is selected?

Here is my vba for On Focus and Lost Focus for one of the textboxes.

Private Sub AssemblySeq_GotFocus()

Me.AssemblySeq.BackColor = RGB(153, 204, 255)

End Sub

Private Sub AssemblySeq_LostFocus()

Me.AssemblySeq.BackColor = vbWhite

End Sub

Thanks for the help!

This is normal operation.  Note that in a continuous form all text boxes have the same name per record so when you change the text box property of Me.AssemblySeq you are referring to each one of them per record.
