    Is it possible to shade cells, rows, or columns so that the color fades from solid to white?

    Hi Chartman,

    Unfortunately, no. Gradient fills only apply to Shape objects, not cells.
    Keep Excelling.

    You can if you use the bacground Option
    Fornmat > Sheet > background.

    You will have to play around with Shapes
    sizes and colour gradients to get the right result.....

    eg Select a shape > rectangle
    colour it with suitable graient using
    your 2 colours.
    Copy and paste into a Graphics program
    save it then Load it in via above method.

    HTH

    Thanks. I'll try using the background method. It's a shame, though, that Excel doesn't have such a feature built-in.
