Hi Zaid,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

Since you are applying custom colors to cells, so you need to add those custom colors to the MS Excel standard color palette before setting them. For your information, Ms Excel standard color palette has only 56 colors. The colors are indexed 0-55. Please check document topic:

If a color is not present on the palette, we have to add it to the palette, please check the following link for reference:

Thank You & Best Regards,
