Data Layout - Do you use alternating row colors?

Last updated by Jeoffrey Fischer [SSW] about 2 months ago.See history

For readability, always use alternating row colors.

Use White and Gainsboro (a light shade of grey). Select the row, and enter this expression in the BackgroundColor property:

= iif(RowNumber(Nothing) Mod 2, "White", "Gainsboro")

Figure: Good example - Alternating row colors greatly improve the readability of reports, and is very easy to do in Reporting Services
