Dear All,

I am using #003134 Hex color code in XSLT as below

<Style ss:ID="s2">
  <Alignment ss:Vertical="Center"/>
  <Font ss:FontName="Arial" ss:Size="14" ss:Color="#003134" ss:Bold="1"/>

And I am calling it as below:
<xsl:template match="/*">
<Worksheet ss:Name="Summary">
<Row ss:AutoFitHeight="0" ss:Height="33">
  <Cell ss:MergeAcross="1" ss:StyleID="s2">
    <Data ss:Type="String">My Company</Data>

But After downloading excel, the color has changed to #003366

I tried most of the possible ways but couldn't fix it. Your help or suggestion on this would be appreciated.


What I have tried:

Googled it and also searched for many articles but did not get any solution. I tried in stack overflow and code project forums as well

The XML format you're using comes from Excel 2003, which was limited to a palette of 56 colours. Any colours not in the palette will be mapped to the nearest match.

You can see the palette here:
Color Palette and the 56 Excel ColorIndex Colors[^]

I haven't seen any way to override the palette with this file format. If you need custom colours, then you'll probably need to use The OpenXML SDK[^] to generate your spreadsheet instead.
