Cell Fill Colour Palette

Dear Fellow Experts, I wonder if you would know why colour palettes change between one PC and another Pc. Basically, one of my colleagues creates a MI report for my review, when I do get around to review, the colour of charts and cells looks aweful and unco-ordinated on my PC, but look fine on his. This happens whether we open in 2003 on both machines, or 2007!

It's all very bizarre!

Any chance you could help?

Only by checking Tools-Options and looking at the Color tab.

Is one, or both, of you using a custom workbook template file?

Rory, not that I am aware of, however, our company does have a custom toolbar which converts colours to the "company" standard (when we click the buttons that is).

I wonder if an addin is being executed at the start of Excel? Doesn't explain why he has different colours then I do though.

Is there a way to check which colour palette is in use (maybe an Excel option)?

Rory, that helps (a lot) for 2003 as I can reset the colour palette, can't quite work out how I can do it for 2007/2010 though.

don't quite know what MS were doing when they decided to change a default colour palette, one that had been around for ever!

You get the points though as you have essentially answered the question and saved me a heap of time trying to work it out, thank you
