Hi,

May be a simple question. I need to display different color to alternate lines in the details section of my report. Can anyone tells me how to do it.

With Regards
S.Arun

Something like this?

./fa/5871/0/

If so, here you are (sample report based on Scott's schema): create a query which - along with useful columns - contains one that will distinguish alternate rows. For this purpose, we'll use ROWNUM:
SQL> select mod(rownum, 2) rn, deptno, dname, loc
  2  from dept
  3  order by deptno;

        RN     DEPTNO DNAME          LOC
---------- ---------- -------------- --------------------
         1         10 ACCOUNTING     New York
         0         20 RESEARCH       DALLAS
         1         30 SALES          CHICAGO
         0         40 OPERATIONS     BOSTON

SQL>

Let Wizard create report layout; select the repeating frame, open its property palette, go to the "General Layout" section and open "Conditional Formatting". Set the desired color and apply changes:

./fa/5872/0/

Basically, that should be all.
