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>

<TR>

<TD>my first table</TD>

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

</TR>

</TABLE>


...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.

 

Thanks.

NT
