    Table cell colour in word 97 (Word 97)

    Does anyone know how to (and if you can) set a cell background colour (borders and shading) to a colour other than the ones on the picker?

    (I've got someone who _NEEDS_ orange cells(!))

    TIA

    Select the cells you want to color.
    In the Shading tab of the Borders and Shading dialog, set the Fill color to Red.
    Next, select 50% as style.
    Finally, select Yellow as color from the dropdown list.
    Red and yellow mixed yield orange.

    (You can also select Yellow as fill color, and red from the dropdown list.)

    Hans,

    That's fantastic! Now to go and demonstrate my omniscience...

    Do the same for you someday (he said, hoping to stumble on an obscure feature that will astound a guru someday...)
