    Format (Excel 2000)

    Hi,
    I am sure this is simple one but I don't seem to get it so some help is required.
    I have lot of excel files stored with similar names but with minor changes in the name. Whenever I have to open the file from Excel it takes a long time to find the correct file. Is there a way so that the name of the file can be formatted using different colours for easy identification.

    No, you can not set the color of the file name. Have you thought of selecting the file names so that they can be sorted into an order that makes finding the file you want easier?

    Hi Leagre,

    I have given a thought along the lines of your idea but I thought having the file name in a different colour would be fastest and best form of recognition. One of my colleagues has some file names in blue while others are in black. He also does not know how that happened, but this gave me the idea that the file name can be in a different colour.

    Thanks in adv.

    There's an option in Windows NT/2000/XP to display compressed files/folders in blue - perhaps that's what your colleague is seeing.

    The files that show in blue are compressed.

    Hi Hans & Leagre,

    I will check that and revert.
