When I open a Microsoft Word RTF document that has a formula of SUM(ABOVE)
it is changed into SUM(<A3:A1>) in LibreOffice Writer.
This is ok for read the document in. But it changes the meaning.
For example if we add a row, then want more columns automatically included in the sum. I seems LibreOffice needs to support ABOVE for good fidelity.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a RTF doc in MS Word that uses SUM(ABOVE)
2. Read it with LibreOffice Writer
3. Right click on to Edit Field and its no longer SUM(ABOVE)
Its now SUM(<A3:A1>) or other numbers
Should preserve SUM(ABOVE)

An RTF doc made with Microsoft Word that uses SUM(ABOVE)
this workaround was implemented in bug 123355. But I agree LO should save ABOVE, BELOW, etc. table's MS Word function arguments.
