See also bug#115879 (concerning NOT).
OR and AND are specified as the names of logical functions.
Without a respective specification OR and AND can also be used as operators.
There are additional inconsistencies.
Assuming A1, B1 are logical results e.g.
= A1 or B1 is rejected reporting Err:509 and not recognising "or" as predefined while
= (A1) OR (B1) is accepted and working.
OR and AND logical operators are not documented in the help of LibreOffice unless logical functions OR() and AND().
Best regards. JBF
AND and OR as a non-function binary operator is an undefined behaviour accepted for legacy reasons. We probably should get rid of it.
Dear Wolfgang Jäger,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Nothing changed in LibreOffice 7.1.
@Eike: do you think we should close this bug report as WontFix ?
Best regards. JBF
I'd rather have it fixed to accept the operator form at least when reading ODF documents but convert it to the function form automatically, because it may have been written to ODF but ODFF has no operator definition, and other implementations don't read it at all no matter what file format.
Not being fixed doesn't mean it should be closed as wontfix.
