    Changing Marker Color on Series in Chart

    Hi,

    I'm stuck. My Excel line chart is automatically selecting yellow for the third line series. I am able to change the color of the line, but the color of the associated marker for each data point remains yellow. How can I change the color of the marker also? I am using Excel 2003. Thanks.

    Marker formatting is on the same tab of the dialog as the line formatting.

    Thanks, Andy. I had previously noticed that, but I had thought it was limited to the style of the marker. After your note, I played with it a bit more. I found that by selecting "Custom" and then setting both the foreground and background colors to the color I had selected for my line color, the markers were now set to my new line color. I don't know if all of the items I selected were needed, but it worked, so I am happy. Thanks again for pointing me back to that Marker formatting on the tab.
