Symptoms

A script using the ModifyComputed() method in a dashboard control, used to change a computed item in a Table section, should change the column's background color depending on the value outcome.
If used against a computed column in a table section, the BackgroundColor and BackgroundAlternateColor properties are outside their normal place in the properties folder of the column object and any attempt to access them will result in an error.

The ModifyComputed() call causes the proxy object of the "Computed" column to become invalid.
