Well, there are two different waysto referring to color in Excel: the palette number (ColorIndex) and the RGB number (0 to 16,777,215 - it takes three arguments, each between 0 to 256). Unfortunately Excel can only display 56 colors, and anyone can change the pallete in use. And there is not guarantee that you can get the same color,e ven by using the same palette number.
old, slow, and confused
but at least I'm inconsistent!
