SImilarly if i type Purple then the cell turn purple

open vb editor alt+F11 and hit control+R
in the project window right click shee1 of YOUR FILE
click view code and copy this event code

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim r As String
 
 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
 Select Case Target
 Case "red"
 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
 Case "purple"
 Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 7
 Case "yellow"
  Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 6
  Case "green"
   Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 4
  Case "blue"
   Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 5
   
End Select



End Sub


type in any cell red and see what happens to that cell
try few more colors and some other cells

I do not what u mean by orange. find the number and add that case statement within the event code
