Subject: RE: [office-formula] 3-d references

Hi Eike,

How do we proceed with adding text that describes how sheets positioned between the referenced sheets are handled?  Should I submit a proposal?

While a reference of the type [Sheet1.A1:B5]:[Sheet2.B1:C5] seems to be "valid", are the expected results defined?  It's unclear how a 3D reference with different ranges or "sides of the cube" should be calculated.

Hi Eric,

Btw, it is not necessary to send copies to my personal account, I do read the list. The copies just clutter up my inbox. Thanks.

Btw2, somehow your mailer setup is broken, your mail to the list looks like it used format=flowed but that is not declared in the header, so text is interspersed with spurious '= ' and '=3D'. The mail to my personal account does not suffer from that and thus was more legible, and even includes your name in the From header.

Yes, that's correct. Without the '3D' in 'SUM' and without '= ' of course ;-) So, =SUM(['Sheet1'.A1:'Sheet2'.B5]) is equivalent to Excel =SUM(Sheet1:Sheet2!A1:B5)

We can explicitly state that. I think it should go into
"5.8 References", other opinions?

No, [Sheet1.A1:B5:Sheet2.B1:C5] is not valid. References can contain at most one ':' operator, see "5.8 References". The expression would had to be written as [Sheet1.A1:B5]:[Sheet2.B1:C5]
