Hello, I am a novice to access and this video shows me exactly what I was trying to do.  I have successfully formatted my continuous form to show in the coloured fonts and background colours that I require.  I have also sucessfully coded the double click events.  However, after double clicking my field, the form selects it and places it correctly in the field on my original form and closes the continuous form but the data shows unformated? (my continuous form from where I make the selection show formatted correctly!)?? I am probably being megga stupid, what have I done wrong?

Mark -
If I'm understanding your post correctly - Conditional formatting does not follow the field you formatted from form to form.

Remember, a Form is just used for DISPLAY purposes on the screen.  (Reports are how the data is displayed during PRINTING.)
You are not changing the data underneath the form, you are just changing how it **looks** to the user.  This has to be done for each form you want to display the data in.

You would need to have the conditional formatting in both the continuous form and the form you open on double click.

Assuming that the fields are exactly the same you should be able to open both forms in design view, copy the field that is formatted correctly, and then paste it into the other form. Unfortunately you can't use the Format Painter across forms.
The other alternative is to manually do the formatting in the other form.
