Dennis Hamilton updated OFFICE-2344:
------------------------------------

Fix Version/s: ODF 1.2 Part 2 CD 2
Assignee: Dennis Hamilton

Set the target and assigned it to me.  I agree with Patrick's recommendation and we will also need to handle the automatic conversions that involve Complex Number type.

1. Section 3.4 needs to be tidier.

2. We need to look out for any implications with regard to what is said about Constant Numbers.

3. We need to review implicit conversions to deal with conversion to and conversion from Complex Numbers.

> The fourth paragraph under 3.4 Complex Number reads:
> ***
> Note that functions and operators that accept complex numbers shall accept Text values as complex numbers (see the section on convert to complex), as well as Numbers that are not complex numbers, so IMSUM("3i";4) will produce the same result as COMPLEX(4;3).
> ***
> If Text and Number values are automatically converted, then how does COMPLEX() accept Text values?
> By the time the value reaches COMPLEX() it is a complex number.
> Yes?
