Conditional Formatting

Use Conditional Formatting to Color Code Tasks


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to use conditional formatting in Microsoft Access to color code your task due dates. Tasks that are past due will show up red. Tasks due today will be yellow. Tasks not due yet (in the future) will be green. I'll also show you how to have the current field that has focus show up as bright yellow.

Amina from Kingston, Ontario, Canada (a Gold Member) asks: I have a list of tasks that I keep in Microsoft Access. Is there a way that I can color code them red for overdue, yellow for due today, and green for due in the future?

Members

Members will learn how to use Expressions in conditional formatting to change the color of a field based on the value in another field. You can use this to change the color of an entire record (row) if you'd like.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!
