Conditional formating

Hi folks,

I'm swapping excel to access, however, I'm facing some problems.

 In excel I used to use the following formulas for conditional formating:

1 -  " =$a1<>$a2 " then put a line border.

2 - " =a$1='sales order' " then highlight the whole row.

Does anyone know how to do the same in access?

In Access, you can set the format field by field only.

So, select a field, open Conditional Formatting.
Then choose "Field value is", Equals (or Not Equals), NameOfOtherField
Finally, select the format to apply.
