Color coding formula

Hi,

I'm trying to color code a report depending on a couple different fields. My formula isn't working, but i'm not sure what i'm missing. Any help would be great.

Field 1: [All info task] :  we want the record to be pink if it has a date. 
Field 2: [internal due date] : we want the record to be pink if it doesn't have a date

Here's my formula

if(not isnull([all info task]) or [internal due date]= isnull, "#ff66ff")
)

  • np,
    but I can only correct the portion of the formula that was posted as i can't copy and paste code from an image.
    I assume that the field [all info task] is a text field type. 

    IF(Trim([all info task]) ="" or IsNull([internal due date]), "#ff66ff")

      Hi Mark, All info task field is a date field.
