I'm trying to set the cell color for a specific cell in my document, but I can't find anywhere that I can use an RGB hex value instead of the ARGB:


Something like that, but I want to use the color: e4eaf4
and I can't do it with this :/ Thanks!

That isn't changing the color of my cell. Are only certain colors supported?

Strange. It is working here.

$excel = new PHPExcel();

$sheet = $excel->getActiveSheet();

$writer = new PHPExcel_Writer_Excel2007($excel);

In Outlook 2003 and using the converter tool from Microsoft, it just displays that color as a white cell. Maybe it has something to do with the software version?

I don't have MS Office 2003 by my hand, can you check with OpenOffice.org 3 ? There it looked as expected too. Tested with both xlsx as well as xls.
