Hello, every time I add a textbox, label, or field to my report in design mode the font color is green and I have to change it to black.  Where can I change the default setting for this so it is "normal" (black) text?  Thank you.

Open the report in design mode, select a label or text box, or other control, set the fore color to black, then select "Set Control Defaults" from the menu. In Access 2003 and earlier this is Format > Set Control Defaults. In A2007, you may have to hunt for it in the ribbon. In A2010, you have to have the Design ribbon open, then click the drop down next to the toolbox control images. Then you should see the Set Control Defaults option.

Or...

Open the Report in design view
Do not click on any objects on the Report
Open the property box (Press the F4 Function key)
Click the Textbox control icon form the Controlbox
The property box will now display "Default textBox"
Now you can set all the properties you like, and each textbox you subsequently drop in will have those same properties.

Note that this is a "Per Form" setting.
The defaults will only be for the textboxes in that specific form.

It will not be the default
