    Default Row color changes when value changes

    I am trying to find a way to get A5 to alternate row color each time the value in a field changes. There was a previous post on this but the solution provided was to change the color of the field (not the row) when the first letter changes (not the value).
    This way when I sort the browse by, say, Productcode I get a visual groupings of records.

    So we should research what you might be referring to and try to adapt it to what you want instead of you letting us know what you found? Applying the same to each field would have the effect of changing the row color.

    Gaby,
    A row is the aggregate of all the fields of a record displayed. I do not believe there is a way to change an entire row but you can change the column for all fields with an order expression to change the text and background of the column/field based upon the value of one of the fields. You will have to do it for each column.
