formatting will work, but trying to adjust Excel would be a mistake for the presence of names of sheets in a formula ...

The problem still exists.
Comment 4 Giuliano 2012-04-12 16:08:12 UTC
Hi xoy.
Should in Ms Excel xls conditional formatting, sheet reference NEVER be used ?
Should this be the error xls exporting ?

The xls generated seems not to comply with Ms format

Ok. So I had a look at this one.

All tests done in master with my latest changes to the cond format handling.

Import of the file looks correct. The leading sheet name is not a problem because it is a relative sheet reference like in Excel.

The problem is that the export generates then absolute sheet references. I can't reproduce the other issue with master and Excel 2010.

I'll have a look at the cond format export and try to find the code that writes the absolute sheet refs instead of the relative ones.
