Description internationils 2018-05-06 15:03:43 UTC
I have a cell that contains the name of the worksheet. I use this cell as a reference for a vlookup (irrelevant for this bug report, just for info...)
When the name of the WS is changed, the name in the cell does not change until I do a F9 recalculate. 

I'm using the formula:

Expected result: The cell contents should change immediately to reflect the new WS name

You can force it adding a volatile function like NOW() to the formula
which forces the recalculation of the formula with every change on the spread sheet. 

If I'm not wrong CELL function is calculate when the referenced cell(s) change their value, which seems it's not the case after change the sheet name.

Please Eike can you take a look.

The CELL() function lacks dependencies on events that are not cell content changes. For "filename" that is renaming a sheet and saving to a different file name. For "format" and related that is changing the applied number format.
