Experts, I have a report with control source of [DisbRQDate] and named txtDisbRQDate
It is a date field.

How can I shade the ones that are not equal to eachother?  

ie:
12/2/14
12/2/14
12/10/14

I want to shade the one that is 12/10/14
There will always be 2 that will match and one that will not match.  
I imagine i need to craft some sort of expression in the conditional formatting part.

thank you

Hi Tony,

Try creating a GROUP BY query for the dates:

SELECT COUNT(IDField) AS NumOccurrences , DisbRQDate FROM YourTable
GROUP BY DisbRQDate

Save it as qryCountOfDates

That should give you a count of occurrences of each date.

You can then include it in a LEFT JOIN with the report's recordsource query, and use

NumOccurrences = 1

as the conditional formatting expression to highlight the 'different' date (the date that only has 1 occurrence)
