VBA Excel 2000 - Basic colors handling

Dear Experts,

Could you propose a reliable way of using VBA commands about font coloring?

I am aware two versions for example to blue
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Font.ColorIndex = 6 - this using the place of color from pallet
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Font.Color = 16711680 - this would set the blue color, but as I perceive at default color pallet settings, it became yellow :-)

Is there maybe chance to use RGB values in VBA?

thanks,
LVL 1

If you set the colour of a range using RGB, it will always be mapped to the closest colour in the palette, since you are limited to that many displayed colours. If you really need to ensure that you get a specific RGB value, you will have to alter the palette so that it includes that RGB value.

Thanks, so I assume to make sure using blue, this should be added always to the workbook

    ActiveWorkbook.ResetColors

and after selecting the blue from the palette, which will be always on the same place in this way

    Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 5
