Currently, only "Color" and "Graphic" are allowed as possible table background options. It would be nice, and would also increase compatibility with MS Word, if "Hatching" would be supported too.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
in 3.6.2 not implemented yet. Reopening
Seems like a good request (although I've never once used this feature in MS Word) ;)
Normal (can prevent high quality work under certain circumstances, I changed this from Enhancement as it becomes a problem when importing a .doc or .docx that has this formatting)
Low (not affecting many people as far as I know)
Thanks for reporting
Hatching in the table cells : highly desirable, as well as mosaics points.
Patches more than welcome. This is an enhancement -- I accidentally moved it out of this category but it is one. In general enhancements take a much lower priority than real bugs -- like bugs that result in loss of data or crashes.
But feel free to dig into the code and try to implement this.
The upcoming ODF 1.4 will allow background fills hatch and gradients in addition to color and image.
