MS Access Continuous Forms Highlight Record with Focus ONLY

GenesisTech asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11
In MS Access I have a Continuous Form with 8 fields on it. The last field gets updated and the other fields help you know what  you are updating.

Data entry people go down the list and enter data in the last field. The challenge is that they make mistakes because it is difficult to tell which Row they are on.

I would like for the entire row to turn RED when the last field is being updated (has focus) while the rest of the rows stay light gray. That would make it REALLY easy to know which row you are working on.

Any ideas?
