Description Richard 2011-07-13 07:55:19 UTC
When opening an Excel file that has formulae with vlookup the range parameter is dropped.

Original Formula:  =vlookup(A2,l_u_range,2,0)
    (lookup value in cell A2 in the range called l_u_range and return the value
     from column 2, no softseek).

Converted Formula in LO 3.41:  =vlookup(A2,2,0)

Attached file demonstrates (created with Excel 2000)

Reproduced on LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:103) for OpenSuse Linux.
Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2011-07-19 11:44:47 UTC
should be fixed in 3.4.2 or 3.4.3

I have for example =VLOOKUP(A2,test,2,0) with a fresh build from the 3-4 branch

can you confirm that this is expected and then test with 3.4.2RC2? It will be available at the end of the week

If all works fine please mark as resolved - fixed

I have downloaded the 3.4.2 version (1 Aug 2011) and have seen that it was fixed.

Thank You very much.
