You can use List layout and choose any color you want for each column
I agree with Johan. You could do this in a table view rather than list view, but a list view provides more options for making your report look good and you can even add buttons to the row if you need to enable some user interaction--something not possible in table view.
But if you want column colors in table view you can:
- Enter layout mode
- Put the fields into the body of the layout--doesn't matter where if table view is the only view option you use with this layout.
- Use the inspector to given them a fill color--this is the option you'd also use for a list view layout
- Now return to browse mode and table view. The formatting specified on the layout should also show in table view.
Thank you for your replys. I'm using the list view, the problem that I am having, is when I go into Layout mode, and use the inspector, to put in a field fill color, in Browse mode, the fill color only shows up, when that row is highlighted. I know I'm missing one little thing, but what is it?
Go into layout set up and clear the "delineate" check box.
Never liked that feature, I turn it off 50 times for every time that I actually want it, yet they make it the default setting on a new layout...
Thank you that did the trick
