Use BORDER_COLOR attribute for fill colour of area features

Is it possible to use the BORDER_COLOR attribute as the solid fill colour in the Area Styles tab under Apply Same Styling Based on Attribute/Name Values?

Essentially I would like to style my polygons with a solid fill (with no border) using the attribute data gleaned from using the Add Style Attributes to Selected Features command . It only seems to allow me to use this value as a border colour and not a fill colour.

For background info I am trying to find a workaround to import the solid hatches from CAD drawings into Global Mapper whilst retaining the colours. Currently it converts solid hatches into TIN Face Areas. I have tried creating a new attribute called FILL_STYLE and setting them to Solid and then creating a new attribute FILL_COLOR and passing the BORDER_COLOR values to it using the Calculator. When I try to use these attributes I still end up with coloured borders.

Any ideas would be very welcome.
