In Microsoft Excel, when you try to restore the background color of a text box by using the Undo command, the background color is not restored to the original color.


This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • You are working with a text box that is on top of a chart object. -and-

  • You format the background of the text box to a color other than the original setting. -and-

  • You attempt to use the Undo command to change the background color back to the original setting.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Excel 97.
