My go-to reference for making Tableau look like Excel is this one - Older But Still Useful – Conditional Formatting | Drawing with Numbers
I don't recommend you proceed though, making Tableau look like Excel robs the best bits of both products, and small kittens and flowers die.
I guess I just don't get it. It doesn't seem like it should be so hard to color code a column with one color based on the header text (2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018). I've tried a number of potential solutions but none have panned out. Just color coding the headers themselves with three different colors doesn't appear possible unless I use two worksheets and line them up in a dashboard (which is untenable in my current situation). I'm using 10.5 and could be using 2018 --- there's nothing in those newer versions that solves these problems?
