Chart Colors Change after closing then opening Excel file

I have been using the same Excel workbook file for over a year. It is series of spreadsheets and charts/graphs. I have formatted all of the charts (each exists on its own tab) to look relatively the same, including the chart area color. However, sometimes when I open the file, the colors Iíve assigned to the data bars et all have changed. This is a big deal only because the charts track a rolling 12 mos and go in the same report every quarter. It looks unprofessional to have the color schemes all over the place. It is also a pain to have to go through and match the colors on 12 charts every time I update the spreadsheets.

Why do the colors change? Thanks.
