    Pastel Color Palette (Excel 2003)

    Bizarre behavior. I have a file (on a closed system) that changed its color palette to all things pastel. When I open another file with my original color scheme next to it and tried to Copy Format, it recognizes and transfers all inputs into its defaulted pastel color palette. Copying a worksheet with the original color scheme to the tainted workbook changes the color to pastels as well. I can' t duplicate what happened that made it that way if I tried and it was accidentally saved to that setting whatever that setting is.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Each workbook stores its own color palette. You can view and edit it in the Color tab of Tools | Options...
    This tab also contains a button to reset the color palette to the default colors.

    Thanks, Hans. The Reset button worked fine. I am afraid to know what made it switch though. I surely didn't take any action to cause the behavior--at least none that I can think of.
