I want to be able to set the conditional formatting - Fill/Back Colour on a text box. The selection of colours is limited and I am looking for a lighter colour of red. Is there anyway to add colours to the selection?

You can use the form Open event to run code similar to

With forms("forms1").Controls("Textbox1").FormatConditions(1)
    .BackColor = RGB(255,255,255)
    .FontBold = True
    .ForeColor = RGB(255,0,0)
End With
