Access 2000 Change color

How can I change the background color of a single row in the details section of a continuous form. Right now if I try to change the color of a single row it changes the color of all the rows.

    There is no way to accomplish what you are trying. In fact, there is no way to change the appearance of any part of a continuous form that doesn't impact every record on the form. Add a Yes/No field to your table and use a checkbox to indicate a change in the record's status if you need to do something like that.

    So I assume this holds true for Access 2003 also?

    I haven't played with it yet, but I would guess so. Unless they specifically say otherwise, which they would probably do in big bold letters if they took the trouble to change it.
