Subject: Section 2.1.3 Large Group: *_ADD functions


Section 2.1.3 Large Group says:

| TODO: Address functions with semantic differences between
| OpenOffice.org2 and Excel, typically identified as _ADD functions in
| OpenOffice.org2: [... omitted list of *_ADD functions ...]

Actually the OOo *_ADD functions exist merely to implement the Excel
Analysis Add-In package (hence _ADD) functions of the same name without
the _ADD, so should behave identical to those. As I currently can't
access an Excel version to try things out, what are the semantic
differences observed?


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
