Powerpoint Chart Colors Question: can someone tell me how to calculate the R/G/Y values for similar colors?

Using Powerpoint 2007 on a Windows machine. I have a stacked bar chart that all needs to be the same color (blue for example). How do I select 4-5 shades of blue that are complementary yet distinct from each other? I am hoping there is some magic way to use the R/G/Y values to generate several different shades.
Note that ultimately I want to create 4-5 "standard" sets of colors: If you need to use red and blue, here are the 4-5 shades of blue to use and here are the 4-5 shades of red to use. These will become the standard for the (new) company I work for. Thoughts? Need clarification? I don't want to buy a template or a set of templates when all I need are 4-5 shades for a handful of colors.
