Won't work.

Me("txtTest").Backcolor = "White" will just give youa Runtime Error 13 - Type Mismatch.
so  will
Me("txtTest").Backcolor = "#FFFFFF" 

The Backcolor property of a control is a LONG.

You can use 
Me("txtTest").Backcolor = &HFFFFFF
Me("txtTest").Backcolor = vbWhite
Me("txtTest") = 16777215
because they are  all numbers but you can't use a string (variable or literal)
