Conditional formatting on a control within a form in access 2010

In the detail section of the form, I want to disabled the control labeled "HoursQty" based on the control "RateOnlyInd" using a conditional formatting rule.

Controls on the form are:     ServiceTxt            RateOnlyInd     HoursQty     RateAmt
Data:
Service1            True
Service2            False
Service3            False
Service4            True
Service5            True

I have tried:
[HoursQty].[Enabled]=[RateOnlyInd]
[HoursQty].[Enabled]= ([RateOnlyInd] = True)

for conditional formatting, select the control(s) to format in design view. On the Format ribbon choose Conditional Formatting, then New Rule (or Edit Rule), choose Expression Is and then specify a rule like [fieldname] <> True -- then  click Enable (toggle to disable) as a conditional format

For the expression, you can join crieria such as [fieldname1] <> True AND [fieldname2] =True ... and so on ...
