Seems like a very ambiguous question to me.  Take a look at
   Color Palette and the 56 Excel ColorIndex Colors

If you want to change all of the cells on a worksheet,  first use
Ctrl+A    (or the gray button above row numbers and left of column letters)
then   use Format menu  where you can change   font,  border,  patterns (inside color)

If the fill colours aren't appearing, the high contrast setting may be
turned on. There's information in the following MSKB article:

OFF: Changes to Fill Color and Fill Pattern Are Not Displayed

Tab Index Problem
I am trying to set the tab index values for my form controls. The problem is that even though I enter a certain value for a particular tab index, it is not saved.

Complex column sorting problem
Hi all, I'm pulling my hair out trying to get a long list of rows (1400+) sorted by two columns of times. The problem seems to be that some cells are empty or have a square bracket [ or ] in them - there is nothing I can do about this as I'm working with data from another app. Here is an example of the data un-ordered (I hope this displays okay...); [ 08:52 [ 06:56 00:15 ] 00/18 01:26 01:39 [ 00:40 04:50=BD 05:25 And this is how I want it; 00:15 ] 00/18 [ 00:40 01:26 01:39 04:50=BD 05:25 [ 06:56 [ 08:52 Simply by order of time with the emphasis on the first column, but as you can s...

Hi, I posted this once before but I still do not understand what the problem is. I have a form into which I enter titles of articles, in a field called "titleofarticle".
