Reports -Output format

Newbie. I can design a report with no problem but I would like date field to flash (or turn red) if the date is prior to todays rate each time the report is run.

That could be done by using VB scripting in the report. However, that would require not only determining if the change needed to be made it would then need to actually modify the report template problematically as the template was being executing. That requires intimate knowledge of the XML code for the report template.

Thought that there might be an easy way to do it, something built into ACT (filters or something like that).

Technically it is built into the ACT! program, no add on is required. Report templates are basically separate programs so often programming is required to get the most from a report.
