Insert a column at the beginning of your view, hide it and ensure the column option "Use Value as Color" is checked. In the formula for this column, add the following color definitions (or make your own based on the RGB scheme).
red := 255:0:0;
black := 1:1:1;
After the colors are defined, add a line of code like the one below. In this example, if the field AssignmentTargetDate is blank, then set this column to contain the RGB code for red, otherwise, leave it as black.
@If(AssignmentTargetDate = "";red;black)
When the view is displayed, any rows which have a blank AssignmentTargetDate will be displayed with red text. You can get as complex as you can with your color logic, but the simplicity of this feature is what makes it so effective.

Just got back from beautiful Boston, MA at joint Admin/Developer 2010 conference by The View. I was there in 2007 and there was a much bigger turn out back then. Regardless, the conference was pretty good and the content was worth the price of admission.
Notable speakers were Rob Axelrod and Franziska Tanner. Francie had some great tips on performance tuning that I implemented within hours that had an immediate impact on server performance.
I’ve been asking this question for about 5 or 6 years now and no one yet can give me an answer: when will IBM support Kerberos authentication with Domino?
Speaking of training, check out this nugget…
A $35 donation is suggested, but not required. Before you give me the “you get what you pay for” stuff, have a look at last years presenters and conference track. Looks pretty damn good for a couple days in Cleveland.
Getting face time with an Ed Brill or Kim Greene is worth the flight/hotel costs by itself.
