Conditional formatting on MS Access 2013 report

In my Access 2013 application I want to highlight a field 'Note' on a report with a yellow background if it contains any data.  If there is nothing in the field I take no action.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong but it's not working.

I opened up conditional formatting on the field and entered this rule:
'Expression Is' and Len(Trim(Nz([Note])))>0   and selected yellow as the background color.

The field is not highlighted on the report regardless of whether it contains data or not.

Make sure the Back Style property is set to Normal.

 Expression is fine, assuming "Note" is the correct field.
