Does anyone have any idea why the Conditional Formatting button in Access 2013 is not working?

The button is there under formatting, I can click it but it won't bring up the dialogue box.

Please help.

Thanks,
E

Yeah. It's really a pain. It just won't pop the rules manager.

I have to right click and get it from the shortcut menu.

Good question. Mine is not working either.
Only right clicking - say over a text box - and selecting CF works.

odd.

It clearly works in A2010. VERY odd.

Not so odd with Microsoft!

Can you try removing the button from the ribbon and adding it again, sometimes it resets the button

Give it a try

I added CF to the QAT and that works.

It doesn't appear you and Remove & Re-Add CF by itself, as it's part of the Control Formatting Group. I could try a Reset, but ... I don't want to have to redo my QAT.

I also tried adding a new Group on the Format tab and adding CF to that. However, that did not work ... same issue.  Odd that you can add to QAT and it works !!

QAT = Quick Access Toolbar - which can be customized independent of the Ribbon.

"Good to know you solved the issue"
Well, not really - but I did find a workaround. This really seems to be a big, unless we are really missing something.
If no one has the answer, I will report  to our MVP Dist List and to Microsoft.
