Excel Colors and Terms

There are many neat features to be used in Excel.  I recently read an article on changing the colors in a range (http://blogs.msdn.com/excel/archive/2009/04/16/modifying-conditional-formatting-color-ranges-in-excel-2007.aspx).  It seems that Excel 2007 allows for new color shades, including pastel shades.  This makes for a more professional look on your spreadsheet.  There is a certain way to create colors, combining the hue, saturation, and luminosity.

Sometimes knowing the proper term for use in a spreadsheet can be confusing.  There are many terms, and using them the correct way means everything when you are trying to get a task done fast and efficiently.  If you would like to know the various terms, they are explained in great detail on this post http://spreadsheets.about.com/b/2009/04/22/ten-common-spreadsheet-terms.htm.  It is a very helpful reference tool, whether you are a beginner to excel or just need a quick answer.
