fill color and font color not working on exce

February 28, 2011 at 11:27:48
Specs: Windows XP
excel program will not allow any color fill on any spreadsheet however if I take the spreadsheet and open it on another computer it is fine. The other microsoft office programs also are OK. It is also changing/adding fill color to some cells that have formulas when I change a number that affects the cell with the formula. Strange. I have googled this and have not seen a fix.

What version of Excel? 2010 - 2007- 2003 - 2000?

For 2007 and I believe 2010 do a diagnostic:

Running Microsoft Office Diagnostics from within Excel/Word

Click the Microsoft Office button
Click on the Excel/Word Options button to bring up the Excel Options dialog box (at the bottom of window)
Click on the Resources button in the left hand pane
Click on the Diagnose button in the right hand pane
Click Continue
Click Run Diagnostics

Running Microsoft Office Diagnostics from the Start Menu

Click on the Start button
Click All Programs
Click Microsoft Office folder
Click Microsoft Office Tools
Click Microsoft Office Diagnostics
Click Continue
Click Run Diagnostics

For 2000 and 2003 try a Detect & Repair:

On the Task Bar
Select Help
Select Detect & Repair

See that that helps.
