Description Aron Budea 2016-06-18 19:38:30 UTC
Bug 77967 reported a crash in Windows during a specific imported XLS document: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=96393 (coming from bug 76611).

The crash has been gone by LO, but the formula is incorrect.
wrong G10: =$TPM.EU340
correct G10: =$TPM.FA349

There was no crash in Linux, there formula in G10 is correct in, incorrect in
Note that because of bug 76611 G10 shows incorrect result in (5.00 vs. the correct 5232.00 in, but the formula itself is correct.
Comment 1 Buovjaga 2016-06-18 20:11:30 UTC

Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2016-08-05 00:12:21 UTC
According to Excel 2016 TPM.EU340 is the correct formula for G10.
Comment 4 Markus Mohrhard 2016-08-05 00:46:43 UTC
Actually G11 is wrong but no idea why. In MSO 2016 it points to TPM.EU340 while it points to TPM.EU341 in calc.

This looks like a problem around shared refs with different anchor positions.
Comment 5 Markus Mohrhard 2016-08-05 00:53:27 UTC
And I'm unable to reproduce it in a new document.

So let us just assume that it is somewhat broken in the file already. The file is too huge and even make mso-dumper choke.
