Filling boxes with colour in Excel

  Publisher 09:24 15 Mar 2005


Does anybody know of a way of filling text-boxes with a colour in Excel.

I am talking about text-boxes, not cells. I don't think its actually possible, but somebody out there might know differently.

Select the text box, and then on the 'Drawing' Toolbar - change the Fill Colour

Don't click inside the text box to select it, just click on one of the borders.

Hope this helps.

I never cease to be amazed at what other people know!!!

Many thanks I have spent hours trying to do this! Who would have thought of just clicking on the border.
