Hi Jacque,

Did you check the box "Apply default colors" ?
When the DB script was still open, I disected the
source code, and remember that on some platforms, the
DB will set the backgroundColor to certain values ;
and when both a backgroundPattern and backgroundColor
are set, the backgroundCOlor is what matters.
That might explain it, or I need more sleep :-)
