    Default Color alternating rows color in reports

    Hello All,
    I have been trying to alternate row colors in a layout_table report but I have not yet figured out how to do it.
    I seems like it should be easy, but after spending a couple of days on it I think I can't figure it out on my own.
    I appreciate any help.
    Nick

    Thanks Gandhi,
    I created a report using quick-report wizard, you can design a report with alternation row colors, if you check <alternating row color> box in the <style> tab.
    I saved the report in a Layout table format. Initially the alternation row colors worked, but after I changed and customized the report all rows became transparent .
    I thought I must have changed some property which turned off the alternating row color. I was not able to find the property to set the alternate row colors.
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Not for a layout table report.

    What is desired can be done with a conditional object but is not natively built into the design choices.

    Conditional object would have two panes. One mod(mrecno(),2) = 1 the other mod(mrecno(),2) = 0

    One pane would have a background color, the other not.

    Blast from the past http://www.learnalpha.com/fancyreports/fancyreports.htm
    There can be only one.
