When I create a report in VS2012 I am using background colors for a couple fields.  The color I am using is RGB (39, 39, 88).  When I run the program and look at the output excel report, the colors are different RGB (51,51,51).  See attached screen shots for example.  the first image labeled DesignTime.png is what I see in VS2012.  The second image labeled Output.png is the output excel report.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Nevermind, i figured it out.  My understanding is that the Telerik reporting tool does not use the same color pallet as Excel.  So if you stick with the basic colors you should be fine.  Custom colors will not work.

Hi,

It must be something with the palette of Excel 97 - Design Considerations for Excel Rendering
