I recently attend the xp office launch during the demo they showed a excel spreadsheet with all the tabs color coded does anyone know if this is just part of xp or can this be done in excel 2000. If you know how to color code the spreadsheet tabs please let me know how I would really like to be able to this..

It's only available in Excel XP. Excel 2000 and previous versions do not support colored tabs.

in addition to Ben's comment

Which, by the way, is the reason Microsoft "featured" it -- because it was a new feature. Some competitors already had it so MS was under the gun to match and surpass. Since the functionality of Excel is still the most powerful, now the cutesy stuff gets more attention.
