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!

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.)
