Description Roy D 2017-01-16 15:06:03 UTC
When opening old Writer documents, with tables in it including some calculations, Writer gives on the formula (Dutch): =som(<E2:E16>) the error **Foutieve expressie**(=Expression Error). The expression should now apparently be in English: =sum(<E2:E16>), which is accepted. I have not read about an intended change of localized function names to English in Writer.

@Cor, can you take a look at this one and comment?

Those have never been localized, until now.
Have seen some discussion on the subject, don't find an issue right now..
It was because sometimes (or in the past) Som<...> was interpreted as Sum, being a fall back / default function.

Set as enhancement.

Comment 4 Oliver Brinzing 2017-08-02 14:00:57 UTC
attached writer document (created with lo 4.4.7.2) has a working 
"localized" sum formula: =summe <A1:A3>
with lo 5.1.6 it gives an error.

this sometimes works/worked by accident, rather than by design

that's true, but i found 2 entries in the german 
help where "=Summe" is used instead of "=sum".
