Can't highlight the object with a colour in between

We are using AutoCAD 2011 and Access Database.

I am new to DB connect functionality. I need to build a system in which we need to highlight those objects/locations which are vacant, among the available 100 objects in drawing.

In order to differentiate a vacant place I have created a table and created a column with name as status which tells us whether the place is empty or vacant. I have created 100 rows in that table and mapped one on one basis of the 100 rows with a primary key ID to a object in Auto CAD Drawing(drawing containing 100 rectangular objects). Now when I query the object (in this case I have treated each object as a rectangle.) the boundary of the rectangle is highlighted.

My query is if I insert Hatch inside the rectangle, is it possible to highlight the vacant objects with the help of query and the highlighted object should show hatch as say yellow colour.
