Help me find where I did this!!!

Well, I feel like an idiot!  Must be suffering from oldtimers disease...  When clicking on a checkbox I set the background and foreground of some textboxes to different colors.  However, I'll be damned if I can find where I did it.  The database attached here has one form and table.  Open the form and click on a deceased checkbox.  The displayed information for the current record changes color.   I swear, I can't find where I did this.
Can someone take a look?  I'm goin' crazy here.

Your database crashes  for me in A2010 and just hangs in A2003.

If you can't find code that does the change then maybe you used conditional formatting?

Oh yeah!  NOW I remember.  Didn't know that it crashes in 2010 though.  Using 2007.  Anything to do about that?
