Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-3785) [spreadsheet] Proposal: extended conditional formatting

[spreadsheet] Proposal: extended conditional formatting

                 Key: OFFICE-3785
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3785
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Table
         Environment: This is an enhancement, described in terms of changes to OpenDocument-v1.2
            Reporter: Thorsten Behrens 
            Assignee: Thorsten Behrens 
             Fix For: ODF 1.3

Extend ODF in such a way, that other spreadsheet formats' support for color scales, data bars and a bigger set of conditional formats like "Duplicate", "Unique", etc. becomes possible.

The current storage of conditional formats as part of cell styles in ODF does not easily allow to extend the existing elements to support these concepts. ODF can't deal with conditional formats that are not only local to the assigned cell but depend on the values of the whole cell range. This makes it difficult or impossible to support the above mentioned conditional formats within the existing style information.

The new proposal has the following additional features:
 - color scales
 - data bars
 - a way to express the range of a conditional format
 - a simple and easy way to add new conditional formats types without changing the representation in the file format again
