Hello,

I was entering all the requirements for my conditional formatting and found that I think that there can only be up to 50 values that can be entered into the pop up box on the report builder. Is there any way to get more values than 50, or to have the multiple factors in one line such as "expression is instr([field], "one" or "two" or "three")>0

something like that?

I believe that's a hard limit. You should be able to have:

instr([field], "one")>0 OR instr([field], "two")>0 OR instr([field], "three")>0

The limit used to be 3 CF conditions until a couple of years ago. In fact it still is using VBA.
I'm trying to imagine having anything like 60 conditions as in your app!

Conditional formatting be really slow if it is very complex logic.

Another alternative may be to put all the logic into the query and derive another field which can then be used for assigning the conditional formatting with a very simple condition.
