I have a form named frm_showlist that is in datasheet view. I need to do some VBA conditional formatting that basically goes like this

if Status_id = 1 format all the fields in the record in red
if Status_id = 2 format all the fields in the record in blue
if Status_id = 3 format all the fields in the record in brown
if Status_id = 4 no formatting
if Status_id = 5 format all the fields in the record in purple

I can do the conditional formatting in access but it only applies to the cell in question, I cant do it across the board for all the fields in the record

thanks in advance,
Vinnie

As capricorn1 suggested.
Select all controls in record, select new rule, apply expression: [Status_id] = 1, select format
For no format set it to automatic.
