Word 2010 / Excel 2010 - Custom Color Palette

We have recently converted to Office 2010 from 2003. One of the questions that a user had was if they were able to customize the font/background color selection.

For example, they use a number of different Excel/Word files and use certain colors for certain fields. In Excel and Word, you can custom colors but they are removed once you close the file.

An example might be that you use a certain color of green to show that something is done. Now, the user has to to into the custom color palette, find the color and select it. It would be much easier if it was part of the standard palette or their own customer palette.

I realize this isn't a big deal but I wanted to find out if it was possible.

Thanks

I can think of recording a macro choosing all the colors you want, so they appear in the recently used list. Move the code from module to "Workbook_Open" event to run on open workbook.
Then save and install the excel file as startup add-in (file/options/add-ins).
No idea if that'll really work though.
