MainFormSubForm in Design ModeTracking No PropertiesHi,
 I have a form in MS ACCESS where I like to apply color in the background and foreground(text). So I open the form and selected a color for background and foreground, but when I run the form, it does not show the colors.
 What do I need to do to show the colors in the subform?

what is the default design view of your subform? Datasheet or Continuous?

Datasheet will not showt formatting of background in form view

try saving your subform as Continuous form.
