Description kornelf 2020-05-05 20:03:32 UTC
Created attachment 160404 [details]
Example of SUM($G41:G61) not working correctly

When I use SUM() on specific rows (example in attachment) with $ sign in range definition, the #VALUE! error occured. This happens on specific columns. In my example this occure on $G$41:G61 and SUM is eveluated on K41:K61.
When you remove $ sign from range declaration, all will work correctly.
It looks like "$" is messing something.

When you move the same data into $A$1:A16 and E1:E16 (sum function) - then all is calculated with no error.

Both examples are in attachmed file (on seperate tabs).

PS. Attachment was created in polish version of Calc.
