Hi Expart,

I have an access report, I want to change the record color alternately while preview it.

for example, if the report has 10 (lines) records of data in reports details while do the preview, if there any way to change the color as if first line is white the next line will be light grey and again third line white and then forth line is grey accordingly,
if you can provide me VBA code to do that.
I am using office 2010.

You don't need code for this. In the report's design mode, click on the Detail section and in your property sheet you'll see properties for Back Color and Alternate Back Color. Just select a different color for one of them.
