Screenshot showing a table with undefined cells (using min, man, and mean)
As opposed to Calc, Writer treats missing cell data as zero.
That makes it hard to use functions like min, max or mean (the min will mostly be zero for positive values, max will be zero for negative values, and the mean will typically be too small.
See attached screen shot for a real-life example (measurement data when not all measurements were made).
In current implementation, the only functions that ignore the empty cells are "AVERAGE","COUNT", and "PRODUCT".
(i.e. When I create a 1-row and 3-column table, and input 1 to A1, =AVERAGE(<A1:B1>) to C1 and keep the B1 cell empty, the avearge value will be 1, not (1 + 0) /2 = 0.5)
