YOu can't mod by 0.

Mod is the remainder when you divide

Try

if ({ItemRowCount} mod 2 = 1) then crSilver else crNoColor

What is itemrowcount?

Are you counting rows?

Try this

In the report header add a formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar GroupCounter;
""

In the group header add a formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar GroupCounter;
GroupCounter := GroupCounter + 1;
""

In the detail section color formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
Global NumberVar GroupCounter;
If GroupCounter mod 2 = 0 then
    crSilver
Else
   crNoColor
