Displaying colors
 
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.

The fill color, the fill pattern, or the line color of a WordArt or
AutoShape
object in an Office document does not change

Bob,

Thanks a lot, your a great help. That fixed it all, Excel, internet
explorer, everything else I wasn't aware of. I've had this problem for over
a month and finally it's fixed. You're a life saver. I would have never
found this on my own
