To Change the Workbook Theme
The Concourse theme includes fonts and colors that provide the worksheet a professional and subtly colored
appearance. The following steps change the workbook theme to the Concourse theme.
• Click the Page Layout tab on the
Page Layout tab
• Click the Themes button on the
Ribbon to display the Theme
gallery (Figure 2–31).
• Point to several themes in the

Why should I change the theme of
A company or department may
standardize on a speciﬁ c theme so
that all of their documents have
a similar appearance. Similarly,
an individual may want to have
a theme that sets their work
apart from others. Other Ofﬁ ce
applications, such as Word and
PowerPoint, include the same
themes included with Excel, mean-
ing that all of your Microsoft Ofﬁ ce
documents can share a common theme.
• Click Concourse in the Theme
gallery to change the workbook
theme to Concourse (Figure 2–32).
Why did the cells in the worksheet
The cells in the worksheet originally
were formatted with the default
font for the default Ofﬁ ce theme.
The default font for the Concourse
theme is different than that of the
default font for the Ofﬁ ce theme
and therefore changed on the
worksheet when you changed the
theme. If you had modiﬁ ed the font
for any of the cells, those cells would
not receive the default font for the
font of worksheet
