    background color in a form

    I'm a newbie to Access and this forum.

    I created a form using the form wizard and selected a style (in this case "stone"). I have decided that I want to use a different color than grey in the background of the form. How do I change it?

    Thanks for the help.

    In design view, double-click on the 'Detail' section header to open the properties window for that section. Select the format tab. Got down to back color and click in the white are which contains something like -2147483633

    An ellipse (three dots in a row) should appear next to this box. Click it to open the color selection dialogue. Pick the new color and close the properties window. Voila.

    The same can be done for Header/Footer sections as well.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
