Could something have been changed in the character/cell style that is shifting the color?

 

Since the number in the following cells appear to not have changed, that would be my first guess. Check your cell styles to see if a text color change has creeped into it somehow.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Randy

Further to Randy's answer, did you import the Excel file with Show Import Options selected and made sure that Formatted Table was selected? This setting sticks, so if at any point in the past Unformatted Table was selected, that will ignore any special formatting/colors and take on the Table Style slected in the ID document including any Paragraph/Character/Cell Styles defined to it.
