I just noticed that a big spreadsheet which has a number cells with a background whose color depends on the value of integer in the cell is all wrong. I tried resetting - recreating - the conditional formatting. It just doesn't do anything.

The number in the cell is calculated by a formula. I do have autocalculate turned on. Pressing F-9 does not affect the conditional formatting (just a while grab I tried).

I thought it wasn't possible to set the background colour according to a changing value within a cell. I didn't think MS Excel can do it either. For advanced spreadsheeting-fu i would turn to Gnumeric but i didn't think that could do it either!

On the contrary, it is certainly possible in Calc: a cell's background colour is a property of a cell style, and it's a cell style that is applied by conditional formatting. Unsurprisingly, you can also do it in Excel. As for Gnumeric ...
