Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (OFFICE-3428) Support calculatedvalues from multiple formula engines

Robert Weir  updated OFFICE-3428:

    Fix Version/s: ODF-Next

discussed at Formula SC meeting 9/14/2010.  Proposal needs more consideration.   Will look again in ODF-Next.

>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: OpenFormula

>             Fix For: ODF-Next
> In OpenFormula, it's possible to do formula including a way to
> describe non-standard formula.
> It would be interesting to be able to add information about formula
> engines and values.
> What would be interesting is to be able to do is the following:
> Letting the formula's be calculated with a formula engine.
> Saving the cells values with a calculated value attribute and formula
> engine attribute.
> Calculate the formulas with another formula engine.
> Saving also the new values with a calculated value attribute and
> formula engine attribute.
> It needs something to preserve the calculated value of that cell and
> which formula engine that did it. Preferably in a way so that multiple
> values from multiple formula engines and versions can be stored
> parallel.
> To avoid problems, software should, without extra input, show the most
> recent results.
> A function to show the name of the formula engine currently used would
> be handy.
> Also a function to show a list of all formula engines (+version if
> applicable) with their values.
> This would be very handy to compare things from different formula
> engines in the future.
> Was inspired by the bottom of this blog post, where formula engines
> are mentioned:
