Subject: RE: [office-formula] Sections 4.8 Reference and 5.8 References?

+1 on Eike's analysis.  Yes, this is about resolution of references, not
their syntax.  And the reference should be corrected.  (Looks like it failed
to be renumbered when section 2 was inserted.)

This was confusing, "(section 3.7)" is part of the sentence, 3.7 is
"Basic Limits" and a bad section number, that should be "(section 4.7)"
instead, which is "Empty Cell". I don't think the sentence should be
moved to 5.8 "References" instead, as 5.8 is about syntax, not
evaluation. Mentioning empty cells clarifies that a cell strip may
include cells without value.


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