Add gradient fill as a cell fill option
The ability to fill a range of cells with a gradient color would allow for a greater level of creativity and a professional polished finished product.
One and Two color gradient fills are already supported. To add one,
1. Select the cell you want to fill
2. Press Ctrl+1 to bring up the Format Cell dialog
3. Click on the Fill tab, then “Fill Effects…”
Now you can create your gradient.
Hope that helps,
