Experts, what would be the proper way to strikethrough a field (much like you can in MS Word) if a certain condition were true?   txtAmount is a field on a form.   If it is possible to do this through conditional formatting let me know.  

If me.cboExpiredYN = -1 then
     me.txtAmount      'here is where I want the strikethrough


I am wanting to strikethrough the txtAmount if the ExpiredYN = Yes (-1)
I guess the If statement would be in the ON Current event.

No pure Access way to do it. You can use a Microsoft Forms textbox control and use something like this: ocxText.Font.Strikethrough = True
