Specifies the color used to display the layer.

To set the color, enter a number from 0 to 23.

This cell value corresponds to the Layer color setting in the Layer Properties dialog box (in the Editing group on the Home tab, click Layers and then click Layer Properties).

To enter a custom color, use the RGB or HSL function. The value of a custom color is its RGB color, and RGB(r, g, b), rather than a number, will be shown in the ShapeSheet window. When used in numeric operations, custom colors have values of 24 and above. A value of 255 indicates that the layer has no color.

You can set the transparency of the layer color in the Transparency cell.
