    Default recreating pre 2007 fill colours

    I'm a bit of a laggard when it comes to excel fill colours - I like the old preset ones pre 2007.

    I'm finding it a bit tricky to recreate them with the custom colour function and they don't seem to be in the 'more colours' picker.

    Does anyone know the RGB numbers for the pale colours of pink, cyan (turquoise), blue, green and yellow?

    Those pastel shades characterise a lot of my old sheets and now I'm writing new ones I'd quite like to keep using the same colours.

    Thanks!

    Never give way to anger - otherwise in one day you could burn up the wood that you collected in many bitter weeks.

    Well, glad to know I'm not alone in wanting easier access to the old colours. I'd rather not pay for a solution, though - I'm well over spent on my IT budget....

    After extensive googling I found this:

    Color Palette and the 56 Excel ColorIndex Colors

    but you might need this too, to identify the colours by name:

    Microsoft Excel 2003 Colour Index Values |
