18.11.1.5 oc (Old Cell Data)

This element represents old cell data. Old cell data is data that was previously stored in the cell.

For most spreadsheet application purposes, only the data type and reference need to be used for revision tracking purposes. The rest of the cell properties can be written out, but are not necessarily needed as they can be recorded in other areas of the spreadsheet. For instance the <rfmt> element can be used to record style information instead of the S (style index) attribute.

Attributes

Description

cm (Cell Metadata Index)

The zero-based index of the cell metadata record associated with this cell. Metadata information is found in the Metadata Part. Cell metadata is extra information stored at the cell level, and is attached to the cell (travels through moves, copy / paste, clear, etc). Cell metadata is not accessible via formula reference.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema unsignedInt datatype.

ph (Show Phonetic)

A Boolean value indicating if the spreadsheet application should show phonetic information. Phonetic information is displayed in the same cell across the top of the cell and serves as a 'hint' which indicates how the text should be pronounced. This should only be used for East Asian languages.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema boolean datatype.

r (Reference)

An A1 style reference to the location of this cell

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_CellRef simple type (§18.18.7).

s (Style Index)

The index of this cell's style. Style records are stored in the Styles Part.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema unsignedInt datatype.

t (Cell Data Type)

An enumeration representing the cell's data type.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_CellType simple type (§18.18.11).

vm (Value Metadata Index)

The zero-based index of the value metadata record associated with this cell's value. Metadata records are stored in the Metadata Part. Value metadata is extra information stored at the cell level, but associated with the value rather than the cell itself. Value metadata is accessible via formula reference.

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the W3C XML Schema unsignedInt datatype.

[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_Cell) is located in §A.2. end note]
