I don't understand what you want.  Can you add a second picture with what you want to see?  Build it with Excel if necessary so we can see what you want to colorize.

Ok, so when they click on a record (select a record)

Instead of black on white and Red.

I want the black to be Yellow with the rest the same on the first picture.

Did this in EXCeL
