Hi there,
Under Access 2007, I use a form and I select one item form a list, the background is blue.
When I do report in order to create  a bill, the item have a backgound blue. In the propriete, I change background to white but it is not working
 Is it possible to change to change on the report as the item will be with a white background ?

Lets clarify a few things first.
An "Item" (or record) does not have a "color" per se.
So what you see in the list is probably the BackColor of the "control"

<In the propriete, I change background to white but it is not working>
Lets be clear, what is the exact name of the Property that you changed?

Note that if the BackStyle Property is set to "Transparent", the color you see will be the backcolor of the detail section.
So in addition to setting the backcolor to white, also make sure that the Backstyle is set to: Normal

Also confusing is your screenshot.
It is not clear what that is showing me (the form or the report, ...the "list", ...?
...besides the backcolor appears to be black and the text appears to be white...
So I am not quite sure how this fits with your issue here...
