Description Eike Rathke 2021-04-07 16:45:29 UTC
The VBA compatibility Range.Formula and Range.FormulaR1C1 properties wrongly use localized formula expressions as if they were Range.FormulaLocal and Range.FormulaR1C1Local.

Instead, they should use English formula expressions and separators, and additionally Range.FormulaLocal and Range.FormulaR1C1Local be implemented.

For an example see discussion in bug 128334 comment https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128334#c9 and following, and attachment there https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=170966
