Hi,

I am trying to format an excel slicer

I just want the little boxes in the slicer to be a dark grey

So in the attached file i would have CBM, CBRH etc as dark grey and unbold, then if the slicer is selected, the box fills red, with the text white/bold

How can i achive this?

Thanks

Hi Seamus,
In Excel 2013 once you select the slicer that you have added to your workbook, the toolbar ribbon should then default focus to a SLICER TOOLS | OPTIONS toolbar.
Within this if you right-click on one of the  'Slicer Styles' you should get a pop-up menu with a 'Duplicate' option - Click this 'Duplicate' option which will display a 'Modify Slicer Style' dialog which allows you to create a new style with different formatting for different Slicer elements.
Please see screenshot attached.

HI,

First create your slicer Style then assign macro to each Slicer like example and change the Slicerstyles accordingly

Sub Client_Click()
On Error Resume Next
Set slc = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer

If slc Is Nothing Or ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Name <> "Client" Then
    On Error GoTo 0
    For Each slcShp In ActiveSheet.Shapes
        If slcShp.Type = msoSlicer Then
            slcShp.Select
            ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Style = "SlicerStyleLight1"
        End If
    Next
    ActiveSheet.Shapes("Client").Select
    ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Style = "SlicerStyleLight5"
End If
On Error GoTo 0
End Sub
Sub ID_Click()
On Error Resume Next
Set slc = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer

If slc Is Nothing Or ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Name <> "ID" Then
    On Error GoTo 0
    For Each slcShp In ActiveSheet.Shapes
        If slcShp.Type = msoSlicer Then
            slcShp.Select
            ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Style = "SlicerStyleLight1"
        End If
    Next
    ActiveSheet.Shapes("ID").Select
    ThisWorkbook.ActiveSlicer.Style = "SlicerStyleLight5"
End If
On Error GoTo 0
End Sub
