Most of the time while developing reports people wonder how to have alternating row colours in the report like below.

Customer Name Address City State Zip
Suparba panda 123 olive rd St Louis MO  54678
John Doe 456 Tree drive Raleigh NC 14676
Jane Doe 768 Hudson rd Atlanta GA 76555

There is a trick to it.

Go to the format section of the Details. Click the Colour Tab. Then click the button next to the Background Colour Check-box..

In the formula editor of background colour, type the following:
if RecordNumber mod 2 = 0 then crSilver else crNoColor


Save and close the editor.
And now when you run the report you will see alternate colours of silver and white in the details section.
