Transparency color in cells

Occasional Visitor

I need the transparency color in a cell to match colors from a PowerPoint slide.  I have the colors chosen but can't find where I can change the percentage transparent. I found gradient but not plain transparency.   I have Excel 2016 - where would it be if it can do that?    


PowerPoint - color 243,188,169 with 66% transparency; color 151,185, 255 with 78% transparency

I don't believe it's possible to set transparency in Excel. Furthermore, I don't think it would be much use as colours vary between monitors and computers. I would make yellow look like yellow and blue look like blue etc. Use Microsoft's themes or Web safe colours where possible.
