Default Cell Formatting

I have this weird issue I hope someone can help with. One of our PMs had used a background fill color on some rows. We wanted to pull a report of these rows but did not want the coloring in there. We reformatted the sheet to sheet be a white background fill and pulled the report.


This worked great except for the system column called "Sheet Name". It still have thte old fill color. I can't figure out how to remove it. I went into the sheet and got rid of all coloring. The whole sheet is white except for a few specific columns that are controlled with conditional formatting.


Another thing I notice is that when I add a new column, it has that smae fill color by default. The text is also bolded by default. Somehow the sheet got some default formatting settings in it and I can not figure out how to change them. I just want the "sheet name" column on the report to be the same fill color as everything else. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    To be clear, the [Sheet Name] column in your Report is the 


    Sheet Name (system column)


    not a column just named [Sheet Name]?

    You can verify this by tyring to add a column to your Report (from the Report, not the Builder) and scrolling down in the list of columns available.


    I can't recall seeing that column formatted besides the hyperlink.

    Can you post a screen shot?


    I've seen some odd formatting in Reports. Some have to do with the Report pulling from different sheets. The exact pattern has eluded me sometimes.
