Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3494) Part 2 6.13 AddCURRENTVALUE function

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3494?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=22883#action_22883 ] 

Andreas Guelzow  commented on OFFICE-3494:

Hi Dennis,

I'll give a try explaining that example. I think it is easier to start with a slightly different example:


First of all, what is the difference between [.C23] and [.$C$23]?
[.$C$23] is the absolute adddress of the cell in the 23rd row and 2nd column.
[.C23] on the other hand is a _relative_ adrress. That address is relative to the base-cell-address, in this case relative to A1. This means that [.C23] stands for the cell 2 columns to the right and 22 columns below the current cell.

So if we are in cell $A$1, [.A1]+[.C23]+[.$C$23] effectively means

If we are in cell $X$12, [.A1]+[.C23]+[.$C$23] effectively means

And if we are in cell $BB$11, [.A1]+[.C23]+[.$C$23] effectively means

Now back to the original example:

If we are in cell $A$1, [.A1]+[.$C$23] effectively means

If we are in cell $X$12, [.A1]+[.$C$23] effectively means

And if we are in cell $BB$11, [.A1]+[.$C$23] effectively means

So in all cases we are adding the value of the current cell and the content of cell  $C$23.

>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: OpenFormula, Part 2 (Formulas)
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Assignee: Dennis Hamilton
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06
> The CURRENTVALUE( ) function is an additional Information Function that provides access to the existing value in the context for which the OpenFormula formula is being evaluated.
> This function corresponds to the current-content( ) function defined in ODF 1.2 style:condition and table:condition attributes and it has the same purpose:
> Whenever the evaluation is in a context where there is a current value, that value is made available to the evaluation as the result of CURRENTVALUE( ).  [Note: a current value need not be associated with a specific cell or even a table, depending on the context in which the evaluation is employed.]
> Whenever the current value is that of a table cell, that value is delivered in the same manner as if CURRENTVALUE( ) were a reference to that cell.
> CURRENTVALUE( ) is a special form of reference that delivers a value based on the context of evaluation.
> When there is no current value available, CURRENTVALUE( ) returns an error-type value.   If the current value is an error-type value, that error is returned.
> Evaluation of CURRENTVALUE( ) shall not induce recalculation.  It does not constitute a recursive reference of any kind.
