Description nonuthin 2005-03-10 16:13:44 UTC
The SPSS statistics program ( has a useful feature for improving
the entry and readability of large data arrays:

You can define labels that will be displayed within the cell when certain values
are entered.  For instance, a value '1' can be coded to display as "Female"
while '2' can display "Male."

In SPSS this is called "Value Labels," but the functionality is very similar to
Calc's Conditional Formatting.  It could possibly be integrated into the same
dialog as that feature.
