Unable to retrieve the background color of a cell

May 7, 2013 at 10:24 AM
It seems that no matter what the background color is of a cell in a workbook, the
Sheet.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.BackgroundColor.Rgb 
property is always an empty string. I've also tried using
Sheet.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.BackgroundColor.Indexed
and
Sheet.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.BackgroundColor.Tint
and whilst these return values, they are always the same regardless of the color of the cell. So, is it possible to retrieve the background color of a cell?
