Belay that just noticed multiple graphics.

repeat with i = 1 to 200 step 2
 put "d" & i div 2 +1 into theGrcName
 set the backgroundcolor of grc theGrcName to the text of line i of fld "in"
 set the foregroundcolor of grc theGrcName to the text of line i+1 of fld "in"
end repeat

I think that will do it. Untested.
