I hope someone can help me out on this one please!

I mixed a few new colors using RGB that I want applied to
certain cells on a spreadsheet that will be shared among
many users.

The problem is, I noticed that setting RGB only changes
the color pallette and if the user resets or changes their
color pallette, then my colors are all reset on the
spreadsheet (and they look bad!).

Apparently its all linked by the color index? i.e. If the
user changes their color index, that change updates the
spreadsheet color.

Is there is foolproof (or at least better) way of applying
custom shading to certain cells in a spreadsheet that will
be more stable (i.e. less changeable)???

Your example code would be most helpful. Thanks in advance
to all who respond...
