asked on

combo box back color changes when record is selected


I have a form with several combo boxes.  When I select a record or click any control on the form, some of the combo boxes appear to change color.  It's almost as if the the Back Style is changing from Normal to Transparent

That's a bug (or feature) that got introduced in Access 2007.  

On certain forms in our databases, displayed in single form view, the text actually was obscured by the change in color.  

Since you resolved this question, you should accept your own comment as the solution.

I did some additional research and discovered the solution of setting the alternate background color to be what fixed the problem
