I use Excel for my home accounting. However I had a major computer crash so reformatted after saving my data. Upon re-installing and restoring my Excel I can no longer change the Tabs colour at the bottom of the page. I used to right click on them and change the colour but all I get now is INSERT/DELETE/RENAME/MOVE OR COPY/SELECT ALL SHEETS and VIEW CODE. Have looked everywhere to no avail any ideas please.
On my version of Excel I have a box immediately to the left of the Minimize/Mazimize button on the right-hand side of the File Menu entitled "missing menu items"; have you tried clicking on the down arrow on this?
Alternatively try resetting the toolbar in Tools/Customize or perhaps running Detect&Repair under Help.
Thanks chaps have tryed all the above no joy. I am running XP Microsoft Office 2000. My version of Excel is Excell 2000 and in brackets it says (9.0.2720) This is the same program I had on my computer before the reformat and it worked then. Very annoying isn't it. Wonder if I should uninstall it and try again???
Thanks to all who tried to help. Uninstalled and reinstalled still the same. I will accept your expert knowledge that I have too early a version. However when they drag me away I will be screaming I DID HAVE IT. Which way to the funny farm?????
