Description Philipp 2018-12-08 05:51:17 UTC
See this issue:

Could you please include this feature as a standard string function in LibreOffice? Like Excel has done in =StrRev. Thanks!

you wrote
I cannot find any documentation, but the functions described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/language/reference/user-interface-help/strreverse-function

and this leads to ms VBA reference: Visual Basic for Applications  Functions  StrReverse

Mike wrote that VBA function works: Could you please point to the "StrRev" function documentation for Excel? (There's none in Excel 2016 AFAIK; there's a VBA StrReverse, also present in LibreOffice's VBA compatibility mode.)

So, where is problem? Please attach test file which works in excel, but not in LO. (Like Excel has done in =StrRev.)

is it just the misunderstanding that @Philipp asked for "StrRev" and the correct name in VBA and in LO Basic is "StrReverse"??? 

as this sample:  

option vbasupport 1

function test_strrev(cell)
   test_strrev = strreverse(cell.value)
End Sub 'test_strrev(cell)

works and as @Mike Kaganski described and illustrated similar with videos in  

i think the correct result for this bug is notabug ...
