I have a report with a series of textboxes. The value of the textboxes is based on the month and year in regards to the present. Each has a function in the value, the first textbox has: =MonthName(Month(Now()))&" "&Year(Now()) and gives the present month and year. Each of the following textboxes has a function similiar to: =MonthName(Month(DateAdd(DateInterval.Month, 1, now())))&" "& Year(DateAdd(DateInterval.Month, 1, now())) increasing the number of months up to 14 months in the future, i.e. April 2013, May 2013 etc.. For each textbox I would like to have the fill color based on the year shown in the value. For this year it would be blue, for next year it would be red, and for two years in the future, it would be green. I tried to do this with IIF() functions and other ways but it does not work Is there a way to do this?
