Hi Kenny and thanks for reply of which I was unaware until today.
I did not find the B&W only box at specified location. Sheet Options has four items, two for VIEW & two for PAINT, all of which are checked. Although I could not also find the box elsewhere, I did find it sometime ago and it was already unchecked. So this is not a concern now.
Is the EXCEL picture you refer to the large circular button top left with geometric desion in it (SAVE icon immediately to the right)? If so, not applicable.
Please note important change in my original thread: COLOR icons work normally on desktop with XP SP3. Laptop Vista Ultimate SP2 no response at all.
Do not believe this is a change; more likely confusion/stupidity on my part.
I don't think it affects this worksheet function loss, but for the record, have just noted desktop has OFFICE2007 Standard, whereas laptop has OFFICE
2007 Professional Plus (intended for company rather than personal use, but consequently MSN Easy Assist unavailable unless buy it).
As a precaution, on each computer I ran REPAIR on OFFICE2007. Upon completion, no change observable, certainly not as to response by COLOR icons.
I also messed about with various Color entries on various ribbons at the top, and by clicking on individual cells. No change.
