Excel 2010 fill color(color palette) has changed anyway to convert it back to excel 2003

Leex1 used Ask the Experts™
Just moved from Office 2003 to Office 2010.  In Excel 2010 i
noticed that the colors in the color fills(color palette) have changed
and now i have hundreds of excel files with filled color rows
displaying a different color.  A red looks pink and yellow as a
very light orange.   Is there any way to convert back to the
old 2003 color palette.

The new themes were introduced with 2007. You would have to create your own theme I think, or alter the fills to use one of the 'Standard' colours instead. You can't simply restore the old 2003 palette.


Using a macro program to convert 2003 colors to 2010.  Can't add different colors to the main palette.
