A well used calc spread sheet after opened in Version for the 1st time has had all relative references converted from relative to absolute.


=IF('Basic Track Data'!$A5=0,"",'Basic Track Data'!$F6)

has become

=IF('Basic Track Data'!$A$5=0,"",'Basic Track Data'!$F$6)

This can create problems since the calc will produce the same results until a formula with relative references is edited i.e. by adding rows or columns, etc.

We need a test case for this. Can you attach a document that we can see the failure?

Marking as NEEDINFO - once you attach document mark as UNCONFIRMED and we will triage.

Thanks for helping out!
