Hi Marjolaine,

Just to be sure, are you using gsn_define_colormap to define your new

  colors = (/"white", "black", "PeachPuff", "MintCream", "SlateBlue", \
              "Khaki", "OliveDrab","BurlyWood", "LightSalmon", "Coral", \
              "HotPink", "LemonChiffon", "AliceBlue", "LightGrey", \
              "MediumTurquoise", "DarkSeaGreen", "Peru", "Tomato", \
  gsn_define_colormap(wks, colors)

color_17.ncl doesn't define a colormap for you to use in a plot, it
simply draws each color that is passed into the procedure

If you are indeed using gsn_define_colormap, please let us know and send
us your script...
