Change the Color of a Worksheet Tab

Summary: Add color to categorize tabs in a Microsoft Excel 2003 workbook.

Manipulating a spreadsheet workbook with many worksheets and having trouble finding the correct worksheet when you need it? You can change the color of individual worksheet tabs to make them stand out from the rest. For example, you could make Accounts Payable the color red, Accounts Receivable the color green, Profits the color black, etc. Just right-click on a tab in the tabsheet at the bottom of the current worksheet and select "Tab color". Then select a desired color from the palette and click "OK".

Note that the currently selected tab will always show a default color, but the tab will have a colored line underneath. Then, when you switch to a different tab, the previous tab will fully display in your chosen color.
