change color of bar on multi-day event shape

Is there a way to change the color of the "bar" across the top of a 
multi-day event shape?
I can change the fill color, but not the bar is always blue.

Open the Drawing Explorer window (menu View -> Drawing Explorer
Look for the appropriate shape on the page -> shapes
Expand the Shapes section, you will see two parts, selecting one will select the whole
shape, selecting the other will select part of the bar.
Now right-click on that shape within the drawing explorer, and select Show Shapesheet
Scroll down to the Protection section and turn off Format protection.
Now, with that same part selected within the Drawing Explorer, menu Format -> Line
and you will be able to change the colour.

Error bar
Do anyone know how to edit the width of error bar freely out of the three options available ? Dennis - If you mean the distance from the point to the end of the error bar, you can assign values from the worksheet, using the Custom (plus) and Custom (minus) entry boxes. If you mean the size of the dash at the end of the error bar, Excel picks it, and all you can do is show it or hide it (Format - Patterns). - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Peltier Technical Services Tutorials and Custom Solutions _______ dennis wrote: > Do anyone know how to edi...

Creating accessible color-independent charts in Excel 2007
I can't seem to figure out (it was easy in earlier versions!) how to take pie charts (or other types of charts) and make them independent of color. I don't mind if the chart uses color, but I don't want to rely on color to make sure that people of varying sensitivities to color or a black and white photocopy doesn't put the user of the chart at a disadvantage. How can I have my different pie slices not just a different color, but in a different cross-hatch or other fill? Thanks, and sorry if this is obvious! Hi, They removed the UI for pattern fills in 2007. Fortunately the f...

Mark my comments with magically changes?

Delay in the First Credit Card Transaction of the day
Hello, I have 3 stores and all of them are experiencing the same problem. The first credit card transaction of the day seems to take a much longer time to complete/process.

It's just a little awkward that the customer is standing right in front of the cashier and waiting that long for credit card transaction to go through.
