how to change color of ListView?

    Tell me if I'm wrong, but, whenever I change the color of ListView,
my application won't start at all. I have 3 columns, and View Style is
set to vsReport. I've tried changing color when the COLUMNCLICK property
is set to true, and it worked. When false though, the whole application
won't even start at all. It said something about ListView1.Column read

I'm using Delphi 3.

The settings that will recur the error:
1. Viewstyle = vsReport
2. Color = other than clWindow
3. ColumnClick = false

Please HELP!!!
