.xlsm file to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:
- open the attached .xlsm file in Calc
- go to D6
=> you can see that D6=SUM(E6:AJ6)/8 but calc reports '0' as value. This is incorrect.
- now copy D5 and paste in D6
=> now the correct value is reported, while the formula is the same than before.

.xlsm file to reproduce the problem

A more explicit way to reproduce the problem:
- open the attached .xlsm file
- go to D7 and type =D6
- now go to E6 and type 2
=> D6 stays at 0 while it should be 0.25

sheet1.xml cell d6

(In reply to Frederic Parrenin from comment #0)

please check "Recalculation on File Load" settings in menu 
i guess your selection is "Never recalculate".

and attached xmls has value "0" stored inside "sheet1.xml".

a full hard recalc Ctrl+Shift+F9 will update the D6 to 8,625.

IMHO this is not an issue.

opening attached file with ms excel 2016 will open in 
protected view and show "0" too. 
D6 value will change as soon as i allow editing

Olivier, please see my second comment. The calculation is not updated even if you modify the sheet.

i can confirm the problem with your second example file.
one has to use ctrl+shift+f9 to get the correct result.

adding issue to "(Calculate) - [META] Calculate bugs and enhancements"

@Xisco: is it possible that someone can take this ?

Bibisected on Linux with 43all to

It has some Calc / xlsx changes, but not sure which could be the cause.

this issue (-> comment #1) is no longer reproducible with:
