I still use Excel to update my calendar/time planner document because the is no 
limit to conditional formatting in Excel.
In OpenOffice Calc 3.2.x, a cell can only have 3 conditional formatting.

It should be important to enhance Calc on this functionality.

This is covered by Issue 8812

Also, there is a workaround using the STYLE function in a conditional format to
select from an unlimited number of formats. See the discussion in Issue 71392, or
for an example.

Using the STYLE function in conditional formats can cause problems like issue
109243 because the condition formula is evaluated again after applying the style.

This issue is in fact a duplicate of 8812.
