In my worksheet, some cells have values and are filled with colors which I don't want to print. Any suggestions please?

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Change the font colour to match the background colour, so that they don't appear.

If you've got some logic for deciding which values you don't want to see, you can do this through conditional formating.

Or change the format to a custom format of ;;; (literally 3 semi colons) which will hide any contents from view.
