    More Colours on XL Palette? (XP)

    Hello,

    The attached screenshot shows the XL cell fill colour palette.
    The number of colours are so limited

    Excel has a color palette of 56 colors:
    - the 40 color palette available on the Formatting tool bar
    - 8 colors for chart fills
    - 8 colors for chart lines.
    A workbook can contain no more than 56 colors, but you can modify them in the Color tab of Tools | Options... The color palette is stored with the workbook, so one workbook can have a different color palette from another one.

    Hans,
    Thanks for this. I forgot about how to modify the default colors in charts. I hate the bright pink and yellow lines on most charts. I just changed my defaults.
