    Changing visibility at record level on a form based on a field value

    This is beating me up, I want to change the visibility of an image and another field for each record on the form base on a numerical status field, could be 1,2 or 3
    The problem is all records are reacting to the status in the first record not for each individual record

    Private Sub Form_Current()
    If Me.Status = 2 Then
    Me.Image67.Visible = True
    Me.Lockoutactive.Visible = True
    Else
    Me.Image67.Visible = False
    Me.Lockoutactive.Visible = False


    End If
    End Sub

    I have put the same code in the after update event
    Where am I going wrong please

    Thanks
    Ian

    This type of code will only work for a Single View Form...Record-appropriate formatting for Continuous View or Datasheet View Forms has to be done using Conditional Formatting off of the ribbon, can only be done for some type of Controls, and is limited in the types of formatting available, Visibility not being one that is available.

    What type of Form are we talking about, here?

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
