Question: In Access 2003/XP/2000/97, is it possible to change a background style for a form?
Example: I have a user who wants to change the background throughout the application. When it was originally created the autoformat "Expedition" was utilized.
Answer: You can change the background style of an object using an AutoFormat. To do this, open the form in design view. In this example, we've opened the form called Customers.

Under the Format menu, select AutoFormat.

When the AutoFormat window appears, select the new Format that you wish to apply. In this example, we've selected International. (originally Expedition was selected).
Then click on the OK button.

Now when you return to the form, the new formatting should be applied.
