I just got a new laptop a few weeks ago and am having a display problem in
Excel. The problem is with colors, colored text, etc. I have opened an
Excel workbook that I created earlier, also with Excel 2003 where I used
the
paint bucket to create colored patterns. When I open the workbook none of
the colors are displayed, it is just white. I can copy the area where I
know
I put the colors and paste it into a word document, and then the colors
show
up in the word document, they just dont display on-screen in Excel. I
don't
know that this is a problem with Excel, it may be a setting in the Windows
environment, but I thought I would try this newsgroup also, since I
haven't
heard anything from the windows newsgroup.
