Description Nikos 2011-07-18 06:25:47 UTC
Created attachment 49248 [details]
Spreadsheet created in LibO3.3.2

Data ranges created in prior versions of LibreOffice (by Data--> define range)show up in the navigator as Database ranges.
However, when they are used in formulas (e.g.> Vlookup) they seem to be not recognized and return #Name?.

The attached document was created in LibO 3.3.3 and contains a datarange (A_testrange). Cell E3 contains =VLOOKUP(D3;A_testrange;2;0) and returns 14 when saved in LibO 3.3.3 but contains =VLOOKUP(D3;#NAME?;2;0) when opened in LibO3.4.2

Confirmed with [Win2K LibreOffice 3.4.2 OOO340m1 (Build:201)]
Comment 2 Markus Mohrhard 2011-07-18 20:01:36 UTC
I'll have a look at it
Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2011-07-18 21:37:08 UTC
It seems it is a bug in our formula api. We have some other bug reports regarding database ranges in formulas already.

I hope I will have time to fix this for 3.4.3

fixed already, should be in 3.4.3 and 3.5

Can't wait to see it. Looking forward to put 3.4.3 in production use in August-September.
Thank you!
