Description:
Copied from office-comment list

Original author: Regina Henschel <rb&#46;&#104;&#101;&#110;&#x73;c&#x68;&#x65;l&#64;&#x74;-o&#x6e;&#x6c;i&#110;&#101;.&#x64;e>

Some details:

Example, data and formulas in cells:

A1: 2
A2: 3
A3: =A1+A2
A4: 30
A5: =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A2;A4)
A6: 700
A7: =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A5;A2;A6)

What is the result of A7?

Original author's comment:

Evaluating the MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS in A7 means to use the referenced formula from A5 and replace A2 there with A6 and remember to replace all A2 with A6 in its precedents.

So A7 is evaluated as if it contains the formula =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4) with additional remark to replace A2 with A6 in further evaluation.

This MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4) now is evaluated using the referenced formula from A3 with replacing all A6 with A4 in the formula itself and all its precedents.

Looking at the referenced formula in A3 we see =A1+A2. We remember to replace A2 with A6 (from A7) and remember to replace A6 with A4 (from
A5). But in what order?

First from A7, then from A5 results in the replacement =A1+A6 and then =A1+A4, and the final result 32.
First from A5, then from A7 results in the replacement =A1+A2 (no A6 no replacement) and then =A1+A6, and the final result 702.

I cannot determine from the spec, which is the correct result.
