Fill cell color in report - the entire cell?

Hi all,


Apologies to ask for something that has already been touched on.


This solution was great to read. It colors the text background in a cell, in a report, depending on the data within. This is almost, but not quite coloring the entire cell.


I have been trying for a while but at this point can I put it to the brains trust? (ie you)


In old school language, what I'm after is


<TABLE border=1 bgcolor=#FFFFFF>


<TD>my first table</TD>

<TD bgcolor=#00FF00>my first table</TD>



...which colors one entire cell, rather than just the white behind the text.


FYI, I would then go to make this conditional depending on the data in the cell - Effectively becoming the Excel stype Conditional formatting.
