Cells(i, 1) = "rgbAliceBlue"
Cells(i, 2) = XlRgbColor.rgbAliceBlue
Range(Cells(i, 3), Cells(i, 3)).Interior.Color _
= XlRgbColor.rgbAliceBlue
'AntiqueWhite
i = 3
Cells(i, 1) = "rgbAntiqueWhite"
Cells(i, 2) = XlRgbColor.rgbAntiqueWhite
Range(Cells(i, 3), Cells(i, 3)).Interior.Color _
= XlRgbColor.rgbAntiqueWhite
'Aqua
i = 4
Cells(i, 1) = "rgbAqua"
Cells(i, 2) = XlRgbColor.rgbAqua
Range(Cells(i, 3), Cells(i, 3)).Interior.Color _
= XlRgbColor.rgbAqua
'Aquamarine
i = 5
Cells(i, 1) = "rgbAquamarine"
Cells(i, 2) = XlRgbColor.rgbAquamarine
Range(Cells(i, 3), Cells(i, 3)).Interior.Color _
