Formatting with color Microsoft Office 2007

    Each cell displays data in a Font color and a Fill color. The Font color defines the color of the numbers and letters that appear inside a cell. (The default Font color is black.) The Fill color defines the color that fills the background of the cell. (The default Fill color is white.)

    To change the Font and Fill colors of cells, follow these steps:

    1. Select the cell or cells that you want to color.

    2. Click the Home tab.

    3. Click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the Font Color icon.

    A color palette appears, as shown in Figure 7-9.

    4. Click the color you want to use for your text.

    The color you select appears directly on the Font Color icon. The next time you want to apply this same color to a cell, you can click the Font Color icon directly instead of the downward-pointing arrow to the right of the Font Color icon.

    5. Click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the Fill Color icon.

    A color palette appears.

    6. Click a color to use to fill the background of your cell.
