Changing the Color of a Button.

Posted by Patete on August 30, 2000 10:35 AM
I have seen buttons within EXCEL spreadsheets that are colors other than the gray color that is normally on buttons. How do I change the color?

You have to use a Visual Basic Button and not the form button. When you right click on the button, click on properties and change the "BackColor". Hope this helps

Use a button from the controls toolbox (not the forms toolbox). Once you've created the button, right click it, and select "properties". One of the properties is "backcolor". Get there, and you're home.
