I have constructed a fairly large financial model (250+ mb) with about 25 pages and many VBA Macros using Excel 2003. When I zip the file, send it via email, and the recipient opens the file (after setting the security options so that the Macros will run), the recipient file looses all color (shading, fill, etc.). It does not appear to affect the color of text (which is both black and red).

Any recommendations or solutions on how to preserve the color, fill, shade attributes when the recipient unzips and opens the file would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
