Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-05-26 23:00:30 UTC
The green data bar lines mentioned in bug 90511 didnt get fixed with the patches Markus submitted and i believe this to be due to the order of the rules in LO is different from how it is in Excel.



This maybe caused by the fact that C5:E30 and F5:F30 have multiple rules with the same range which appear above and below C4:E30 and F5:F29 with Excels rules list, while in LO they are all grouped under one entry in the manage conditional formatting dialog. I assumed this is the case, as deleting F5:F29 in LO fixes the problem.

(In reply to Yousuf (Jay) Philips from comment #0)
> LO
> ------
> C4:E30
> C5:E30
> F5:F29
> F5:F30

Confirming I see this in Format - Conditional Formatting - Manage.

In comment 12 of bug 90511 Darshan commented about the effect of this:
"Note the color of the Data Bar is set to "Orange" in Excel but shows Green in Calc."

As might have been obvious from my comment in the other bug report this is a WONTFIX.
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2016-01-27 09:38:40 UTC
Must have missed it, closing.
Comment 5 Luke 2016-01-29 04:43:59 UTC
If I understand this correctly, Calc's evaluation rules differ from Excel's. Why can't this be left open as an enhancement? Is there a reason we couldn't implement both models like we do with the formula syntax(Calc A1 vs Excel A1)?
