MS Access Change Textbox Background Color Depending on Another Textbox Value On a Continuous Form

I have a subform for notes. In this subform it has a combo box for choosing Private or Public. I would like to have my notes background to change color depending upon if the notes are Private or Public for easy distinction between the two types.

My only issue is how do I make the continuous form have different background colors for each record while they are all showing in a continuous form display?

Something like:
If Me!txtPrivatePublicID.Value = "1" Then
   Me!txtSourceSkuNote.BackColor = vbYellow
 End If
    
  If Me!txtPrivatePublicID.Value = "2" Then
     Me!txtSourceSkuNote.BackColor = vbBlue
  End If

Open in new window


 If Forms!frmSKuSource!frmSourceSkuNotes.Form!txtPrivatePublicID.Value = "1" Then
   Forms!frmSKuSource!frmSourceSkuNotes.Form!txtSourceSkuNote.BackColor = vbYellow
 End If
    
  If Forms!frmSKuSource!frmSourceSkuNotes.Form!txtPrivatePublicID.Value = "2" Then
     Forms!frmSKuSource!frmSourceSkuNotes.Form!txtSourceSkuNote.BackColor = vbBlue
  End If

Open in new window


Thanks for the help!
