4.8 References - Additional description or additional rules? ------------------------------------------------------------ Key: OFFICE-2379 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2379 Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC Issue Type: Improvement Reporter: Patrick Durusau Following the reference syntax we say: "References always begin with '['; this immediately disambiguates cell addresses from function names and named expressions. SheetNames include single-quote(') characters by doubling them and having the entire name surrounded by single-quotes. Column labels shall be in uppercase. The syntax above supports whole-row and whole-column references, but they shall always have a range marker, e.g. [.A:.A] would be a reference to the whole first column and [.1:.1] a reference to the whole first row of the current sheet. The optional "$" marking in sheet names, Column , and Row is used to identify absolute values; without the marking they are relative. " With the exception of the requirement for references to always have a range marker, isn't this already stated in the syntax? With reference to the range marker, why isn't that reflected in the syntax? I am not sure what "The optional "$" marking in sheet names, Column , and Row is used to identify absolute values; without the marking they are relative." may mean. If it is an absolute value, then it isn't relative. Yes? Or is there some other meaning at work here? -- This message is automatically generated by JIRA. - If you think it was sent incorrectly contact one of the administrators: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/secure/Administrators.jspa - For more information on JIRA, see: http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira
