Chapter 4. Formatting Your Worksheets > Adding Patterns, Color, and Shading

Adding Patterns, Color, and Shading

You can add a pattern to a cell, or you can change the color of either the cell background or the cell contents. Keep in mind that data that appears in color will print in color only if you have a color printer.

If you don't have a color printer, you'll still be able to see a difference in background and pattern; however, it will print out as shades of gray. Use caution when assigning backgrounds and colors to your spreadsheet data. You still want the data to be readable, and if you choose too dark a color or too busy a pattern, the data may become illegible.
