    Trouble with expressions

    Hello,



    I am trying to create a conditional formatting expressing with multiple variables, but can get the last piece to fit. Basically I want a date field to turn red when one of two other fields is not present and if the date is overdue. The first field is a check box the other combo box. Here is the expression I thought I could use...

    IIf([Revocation Appealed]=False,"n") Or IsNull([Revocation Outcome]) And [Appeal By]<=Now()

    I want the outcomes to be:

    if checkbox is empty and combox box empty and date overdue = red
    if either the checkbox or combo box have values = black
    if checkbox empty and combo box is empty and date not overdue = black

    having either the checkbox or the combox box with values meets the criteria of the item not being overdue and I can get it to work with one or the other but not both... any help would be greatly appreciated!

    In the report detail band, use the event ON PRINT, (use your text box names)

    Code:
    select case true 
      case not checkbox.value and isNull(cboBox) and txtDate > [targetDate]
           txtDate.ForeColor = vbRed
      case else
           txtDate.ForeColor = vbBLACK
    end select

    Oh Man, I was afraid it was going to involve coding. I am so new to Access and not familiar with coding at all, so I was hoping I could keep from having to go into the view code screen. I do appreciate your help though!

    if checkbox is empty and combox box empty and date overdue = red
    if either the checkbox or combo box have values = black
    if checkbox empty and combo box is empty and date not overdue = black


    Conditional Formatting should be able to do this.

    Basically, the text color will be black unless:

    [Revocation Appealed]=False And IsNull([Revocation Outcome]) And [Appeal By]>=Now()
