Custom a color palette in Word X

I am a graphic designer that's in need of some instructions on how to create bespoke company colours in the default colour palette in MS Word X. I have created a template where I have protected the header and footer and all I need is to add a set of company colours. I understand that you can create any colour by going to the formating palette > font colour > more colours button but when you add your new colours and take the template file to another machine the new colour palette disappears. I can see another designer on here has asked the same question and the responding person has given advice on creating macos using HEX colours.

Does anyone have some advice for me?  If I do have to write a macro could somebody give me exact instructions given that I cannot understand script to well. I have all the HEX colours ready.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi rweil,

Many thanks for your response. In answer to your questions -

There are 13 colours altogether, see below for HEX references

D0103A
1E1E1E
F3CF45
B3995D
C75B12
850057
4B306A
0083BE
44697D
AEA400
1E9D8B
5D4F4B
773141

As the palette all I want is the user to see the palette and click on the relevant colour to change the font colour or apply colour to shapes. So basically a palette like the existing font colour one.

Can this be done or would you have to do it in a different way? As long as the client can access this palette I would be happy.

Many thanks
