Hello

maomd :

To apply a fill color follow these steps:

On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the Fill Color button's drop-down menu.

The Fill Color palette appears.
Use the Fill Color button to choose a solid background color to add to selected cells.

Select the color you want to use in the drop-down palette.

Excel's Live Preview lets you see what the cell selection looks like in a particular fill color when you move the mouse pointer over the color swatches before you click the desired color.

i am happy but just wondered what you did?

maomd :

Office 2010 has been reorganized from previous versions of Excel, which can make things a little difficult sometimes.

maomd :

It should always be available under the home tab.

Customer:
