I have downloaded some reports from the Invelos website, including one that is perfect for my needs, "LunatiCs Color Coded report." This report lists the collection by Title and also color-codes each title by Genre. However, when I run the report, it codes the wrong genre to each Title. I have tried to edit the report but I am not tech-savvy and just made things worse before closing my edited report. Can someone please help me create or edit a report that is essentially a working version of the "LunatiCs Color Coded" report? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

I took a look at the report and there is no way to fix it, not as currently implemented.  The problem is that titles can have more than on genre attached to it. Fourteen to be exact. Therefore the report has a priority of which one gets listed. For example, if it is action, it will be the only color printed, no matter if there are other genres attached to the entry. It will always only be a single color.

The only way that I know of to fix it is to divide the title line into 14 parts and only print the color if the genre matches.  The "other" genre would need something other than white.

So, instead of a single color, you would get splotches of color.
