Experts, I have this form that has some weird colors and designs that I want to remove.  I dont know how I can do this.  I just want a plain type of form and no designs.  I took this form from another db of mine (2007 I believe).  I am using 2010 now.

In design view, select Form Header, for example, and change its background color to whatever you want.

Select other parts and do the same.

it is not that easy, here is what you need to do

open form in design view
open FORM property window NOT the Header property
in Format tab look in the Picture property  which have  (image)
remove the entry (image) , delete

 click OK when asked if you want to delete the image

now select Header and choose the background color you want

save the form

Ahhhh yes that is it Rey.  Thank you

Eghtebas,
I tried changing background color but it doesn't remove the image Rey refers to. I knew it was something a little more complicated.   I didn't know where to look and if it actually was an image that needed to be removed.

Thank you
