To print words in color:
------------------
use Term::ANSIColor;
print color("red"), "Stop!\n", color("reset");
print color("green"), "Go!\n", color("reset");

Are you using Spreadsheet::WriteExcel?

If so, you define a format with:
    $format1 = $workbook->add_format(%props);

Then use that format in a cell with:
    $worksheet->write_string(1, 0, "Two", $format);

Details are available here:
