Changing Background on a form for 1 record only

I have a form that is continuous.  I need to change the color of background of a field for the record that has focus.  This will allow the user to know what record has the focus.  I know I can use Record Selectors = Yes.  Thanks,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use conditional formatting, Change the Condition from "Field Value Is" to "Field Has Focus"

Use conditional formatting on the field.

Couple ways to do this.  One is to use conditional formatting on a bound control:

Another method along the same lines (but older) is this:

And finialy, a method that does not rely on conditional formatting at all (sample attached).
