Microsoft Access conditional formatting to create alternate shaded rows

Hi.

I am using Microsoft Access 365.  --- Microsoft Access  in the  form design mode.

I am using a continuous form with conditional formatting to highlight cells of certain conditions.
If there are no concerns, then I would like the background color of the cell to have alternate color shades from one  row to another.

Because I am using conditional formatting,  I have had to set the "Back Style" property to "Normal".  So, if no conditions are met, the background  color will default to  the "Back Color" property of that field (see Properties jpg)

I have not been successful.  I would appreciate any help.

If you set the default background to transparent, Access should let the standard alternate row formatting show.

Indeed, this would work,  but conditional formatting then gets turned off for that field.
