Can you see the colors in Print Preview?

If this is a problem with all files with coloured cells, the Windows OS high
contrast setting may be turned on. There is information in the
following MSKB article:

OFF: Changes to Fill Color and Fill Pattern Are Not Displayed

Just loaded Office 2003 and now cannot change cell color or text color in
Excel sheet created in Office 2000. Cells are not protected or locked and
file is not read only. Other alterations such as font changes are possible.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Thank you for the help. Article is no longer available. To fix problem:

Go to Control Panel and click on Eas of Access Center

Change High Contrast option

Or

Hold Alt + left shift key + print screen

That will change setting to allow high contrast to be turned off for at
least that session.
