    Hi DeAnne,
    You did not indicate what version your daughter has, if she has 2002
    she would right click on the sheet tab OR on the format menu
    choose sheet, then Tab Color.

    If you don't have Excel 2002 there are alternatives to coloring the tabs
    that make more sense to me than color.
