Possible reason that vertex colors are not working?

Jun 2, 2014 at 1:32 PM

I set vertex colors by autofilling, but all the nodes still have the same color in the display. I tried both by using a Category as well as by a number. Vertices color column looks like this:

Coleman 111, 51, 131
Simpson 181, 97, 63
Larsen 91, 37, 151
Roche 221, 124, 24
Allen 201, 111, 43
Temple 171, 90, 73
Cullen 181, 97, 63
Ferreira 181, 97, 63
Hall 91, 37, 151

but all the nodes are navy. I have columns both with department name and department code (a number). Mapping to categories (name) and codes (number) both produce the same result.

thanks for any clues,

Hello, Patti:

Does your graph has groups? If so, please do this:

1) Go to NodeXL, Analysis, Groups, Group Options.

2) In the Group Options dialog box, set the "What colors should be used for the groups' vertices" option to "The colors specified in the Color column on the Vertices worksheet."

Hi, Tony,

Marc walked me through this. That was the problem. Thanks for the great support!
