Description Mike Kaganski 2017-12-12 10:52:55 UTC
Format() runtime function help (https://help.libreoffice.org/Basic/Format_Function_Runtime) should contain a link to general format codes (https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Number_Format_Codes).
Comment 1 Olivier Hallot 2017-12-12 12:27:27 UTC
Yeah... pretty intense textual description of formats.

Thanks Olivier!

A nitpick: the format codes page isn't specific to Calc; it's the general format description that equally relates to Calc, and Basic (and maybe other places that use the same engine). It is placed under Common (or GLOBAL in new help system when using search in Index); its URL is text/shared/01/05020301.xhp (I suppose that "shared" also means not specific to single module).
