Default Colors change from '07 to 03 in Excel


I am working in Excel 2007 how come when i send my workbook program to
someone who is working in Excel 2003 the colors that i selected are not
sticking they are totally different colors when the other person opens
my workbook? Example I used a baby blue and they are opening in a teal
color (yuck). I am saving this workbook in Excel 97-2003. What should I
do to have this workbook open in the same color i have choosen?

Default Colors change from '07 to 03 in Excel


I read a lot of post that are similar to mine. I created the color that
i wanted and it saved in my workbook; here is where the problem lies
when i send my workbook (I created it in Excel 2007) to a co-worker and
they have excel 2003 the colors that i have on my computer don't
transfer to them they are a totally different color. How can i get my
colors to stay when they open my document is my questions. Can someone
help me please?

Broop, Microsoft in their wisdom only included 10 of the original
colours on xl2007, you can try this http://tinyurl.com/5klbq4 to create
a 56 colour chart!

You can of course try using the format painter to keep the original
colours (copy/paste special formats).

I think its a case of you have to live with it until your users upgrade
or purchase a copy of xl2003 and do all your design work in that!

I have tried this and I got it to work.
Office Button
Excel Options
Save
Colors
Enter the custom codes you want to create your color
OK

When i sent the program to someone using excel 2003 my colors were
there when they opened the document.
