    Colouring Aspects

    Hi all, I'm really hoping I'm not missing something terribly obvious but is anyone aware of a way of colouring an aspect red in a template. The reason I ask is I have set up data collection from teachers, current grade, predicted grade, attitude etc but at the start of the year they put in a target grade. I'd like to colour this red so in the marksheet they see this. Any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    Use the nested 'if then else' to compare actual to target and you can colour code within this function. Helps if the gradesets for the aspects have a points value.

    You could even just do a If x is greater than 0, so compare it to a fixed value, then pull the value through with a colour, so it should work even when all other grades are empty.

    Seems I did miss something terribly obvious, especially as I was using nested if else's last week! Thanks for the replies guys, appreciate it.
