Using the following lines in my Calc macro:

oRange = ThisComponent.Sheets.getByName("MySheet").getCellRangeByName("I21:AC47")

It also clears the Conditional formatting, why ?

clearContents(1) should only remove a VALUE right ?

Yes, of course - you are right: clearContents(1) remove a VALUE only. Your macro did it in my test sheet (conditional formats wasn't changed). What conditions and what styles you use when macro not work properly?

Well to be honest I didn't try it in a new sheet...(Iwill do that) It used to work but after a certain update (I do know when unfortunately, because I didn't notice the loss of the conditional format). I use a formula IF(I$60= "c") and apply a defined 'My_Style' some colour stuff.

Sorry, I do not quite understand the meaning of the condition. "If the value in line 60 is exactly equal to "C" ... So what? Then?.. Else?.. Maybe you didn't mean IF(), but just a comparison?

Eh, If I$60 contains a "c" Then apply style 'My_Style' is what I'm doing for a row so I have a visual cue about the state (contained in the I$60 cell) of the sheet, if you understand what i'm saying...

Yes, I think I understand what you are saying :-) I meant that the conditional format in this case can be written without using the function IF().

Your macro works correctly. In the range "I21:AC47" removed only numbers. Strings, formulas and conditional formats are in place.
