Table formula MAX() is not working when opened in LO.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new docx in Word.
2. Insert a table with some numbers.
3. Create a MAX formula in one of the cells.
4. Save it and open it in LO.
The cells that contain a formula has a 0 in them regardless what was in them before.
They should have the same number as in MSO.

A document which contains some MAX formulas.
Closing as a dupe of bug 123355

Not resolved in bug 123355, it was about Average.

A1 has =MAX(BELOW) (=13)
A2 has =MAX(RIGHT) (=8)
C3 has =MAX(ABOVE) (=7)
D4 has =MAX(LEFT) (=15)
Of these the two in column A are not rewritten and give 0 as result in current Writer, but the ones in columns C and D are rewritten (to MAX(<C2:C1>) and MAX(<C4:A4>) ), and give the expected result.

fails with AVERAGE too
This is no a problem with the formula MAX, it also fails with AVERAGE. The problem is using BELOW on cell A1

Modified version of the example file
I don't think the problem is with the MAX function itself. More like with the replacement of the LEFT/RIGHT/ABOVE/BELOW specifiers.

Here I tried to break things but the only common pattern found yet is that any formula in the first column does not have its LEFT/RIGHT etc replaced.
@all: thanks for the nice catch and investigation! Handling of the first column missed completely. Interestingly, there was another problem, too: the original formula of the first cell wasn't grab-bagged, causing the same problem, but only in the cell A1:

3rd example DOCX - Screenshot MSO LO with values
I still see and issue here: values are not the same, maybe a priority problem.
Please also explain why LEFT, RIGHT..are replaced instead of having similar functions.

Which document are you using ? Should we just create a new ticket for it ?

Same examples as here, except I added them to a single DOCX, it's here.
Note: opening DOC is same is MSO and LO.
I close the bug, because the new file contains a circular reference in the second row of the second table. I think, circular references are unwanted in formulas of text tables. By the way, Word's results are worse in this example, see Word's number 18 in D1 with formula MAX(BELOW): there is no 18 below that cell. Maybe pressing F9 can fix there, too, maybe not, but for example, circular references are forbidden in Calc by default (you can switch on iterations in LibreOffice Calc->Calculation page, sometimes it's meaningful the result).
