Description Markus Mohrhard 2012-07-06 18:52:59 UTC
Currently we seem to store error values not according to OpenFormula.

OpenFormula requires us to store error values as string and not as value. See http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/cos01/OpenDocument-v1.2-cos01-part2.html#__RefHeading__1017900_715980110

Currently we write entries like: 

<table:table-cell table:formula="of:=SQRT(-1)" office:value-type="float" office:value="0">
