I have form control buttons that I am using for links to websites in my spreadsheet. I am using them because they are usable on macs and pc's. Right now they are gray but I would like to change their background color, not just the text color. Any help will be appreciated.

I don't think that property can be changed with a forms button.

I agree with VoG, I don't think it can be changed, however a workaround is to create a rectangle from the drawing toolbar, format however you want and then assign a macro to it's click event.
