hi
Here is an interesting one - is there some way to change the default colour setting of conditional formatting from light red fill with dark red text to something else? (it's for a colour blind user)...
Thanks.

What is the current conditional formatting rule and is this (which is Excel's "Bad" cell style) what you have now?

it's more that the user wants to know if there is a way to change the default setting of "light red fill with dark red text"....she is well able to use conditional formatting - it's the default she wants to know how to change...

Are you talking about the default colors for the "Bad" cell style?

I don't believe there is any way to change that default starting format.
