Unsure if this is correct place for this, but here I go.
I wish to create a timetable using Excel (Not Works).
It will consist of several columns and several rows.
I want to highlight selected rows to be printed in a colour other
than black. How do I achieve this please?
In Win95, using Works, it was possible.
In WinXP, using Works, it is not.

Of course being Signor El Thicko, I hope you can educate me.
Many thanks.

Hi Tiger25
In the upper right hand corner of excel's toolbar you should see a "Bucket" and an "A".
They should have colors underneath them and a drop down arrow next to them.
Highlight a row or column. Change the background color of the row or column with the "Bucket" and the text color with the "A".
You can do this ahead of time so that any text entered in the future automatically changes to the color you want. (use the drop down arrow to select different colors)
Is that what you mean?

Say HS....Tks again. Just did as you said.....got it to print in colour as required.....now got to resolve why the colour is not the one selected..... (just checked. The manual on the printer gives the order of the cartridges in my Epson Photo R300, which was done. The actual indicateor "blobs" above the cartridge assembly are...guess?.... different! Will await cartridge change and insert per the blobs!.
Tks again. Hopefully, problem solved.
E T!!

Hmmm.
Wrong cartridges in the wrong spots will definetly give you a color variation. :thumbsup:
Anyway, your welcome.
