Color to a Range
You can make a range stand out from the rest of the
worksheet by applying a background color to the
range. Note, however, that if you want to apply a
background color to a range based on the values in
that range — for example, red for negative values
and green for positive — it is easier to apply a
conditional format, as described in “Apply a
Conditional Format to a Range,” later in this chapter.
You can change the background color by applying a
color from the workbook’s theme, from the Excel
palette of standard colors, or from a custom color
that you create.
