Description stallersattel 2011-02-16 00:44:03 UTC
Action: Double click on a cell containing a formula. 
Result: The formula will reappear and each cell included in the formula will be 
        color coded.
Unfortunately this does not apply to cells
(1) which reside within a sheet whose sheet name contains space and/or dash 

    Workaround: eliminate any spaces and dashes in sheet names of affected 
(2) which are referenced in a formula followed by "%", e.g. cell C1 contains 
    For clarification: cell A1 will not be colour coded when C1 is double
    clicked whereas B1 will be color coded.

    Workaround: add a space between cell reference and %: =B1/A1 %

As for the first problem - to be more precise:

The problem appears if a cell reference in the formula is prefixed 
with a sheet name which contains space and/or dash. Any cell referenced 
this way will not be color coded.
