The attached file is displayed "normally" in Excel, but in Calc all rows have a red background.
Tested on Fedora and Windows.
Created attachment 49704 [details]
The file was created in Calc with copy/paste from Excel
Reproduced on LibreOffice 3.4 340m1(Build:103) for OpenSuse Linux.
Very strange. The cells have no color fill, yet appear red. I suppose this means that Excel displays the cells correctly.

This is because of the underlying condition in the excel document. But I don't understand the logic of this condition.
Markus I assign this to you, feel free to change.
This is the condition:
"Format only cells with" - "Cell value" - "unequal"
Seems Markus is not working on this. Freeing the bug.

I am starting on it.
I am working on this bug, and I need help locating the codes for this matter. Is anyone actively working on this now? Any help, suggestion is appreciated. Thank you.
Could you please clarify step by step about what and how you were copying the table? Were you pasting plain text, or formula, number or text? Which option did you choose for copying and pasting?
Did you also try to modify something about background color in the excel sheet, or libre office calc? I would very much appreciate it if you can answer these questions. Thanks!
I just did Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Nothing special was selected or done.
I don't have the original xls file, and I wasn't allowed to publish it anyway.
This is a conditional formatting issue. If you want to change the LibreOffice Calc document to how it looks like in Microsoft Office Excel, please do the following steps.
In LibreOffice Calc, go to:
2. Conditional Formatting
Then, a message box will pop up, asking you this question:
"Do you want to edit the existing conditional format?"
4. Click "Yes"
In "Apply Style" line, you will see "Excel_CondFormat_1_1_1".
5. Change it to "default".
6. Click "Ok"
For clarification, it is not exactly a bug in LibreOffice. In conditional formatting setting, it states that if cell is not equal to the formula "=INDIRECT("Dummy_for_Comparison!"&ADRESS(ROW();COLUMN()))", the background color is set to red. According to this condition, all cells with content that doesn't match the formula should be red. All the filled up cells in the document don't actually match with the formula, so those cells are red. So, LibreOffice Calc is doing the right thing.
However, in Microsoft Office, it doesn't seem to recognize the formula (I am not sure what can actually match with this formula???), so the conditional formatting isn't applied. Therefore, default mode is on, disregarding the conditional formatting rule. Hope it helps.
