I have an Excel spreadsheet for a sports team, with its W-L-T records over a decade. The background color is green for a Win, yellow for a Tie(Draw) and red for a Loss. In Excel, I use the CountColor function to keep a running total of each. Is there a similar function in OOCalc that will accomplish the task?

Thank you

There is no such function in Excel. You installed some add-on or VBA function to get this function.
Hiding values in attributes is very bad spreadsheet design.

A set of functions to fix such broken spreadsheets:

Get the color codes, convert formulas to values and apply conditional formatting.
