Hi, i´m Nik from Argentina. First sorry about my english i speak spanish. 
I Use every days Libreoffice Calc. Before i use version, and everythings Ok. When install i found some Bugs. Two that are important. One in new versión ( show “N/D” that you can see in image “Libreoffice Bug BUSCARV Function.png”, when find cells in other sheet, the   function is: 

=BUSCARV(B15;'C:\Mis Documentos\COSTOS\[Precios_Actuales.xls]Precios'!$B$4:$AE$400;22;0)

I want find in “Precios_Actuales.xls”, in “Precios” from $B$4:$A$E400  the equal respect cell B15 from origen  (NS0280 Llada.xls in this case), the cost  in row 22 (W).

Excel 2003, Openoffice 4.01 and Libreoffice function works perfectly, but not in Libreoffice (Files: “NS0280 Llada.xls” and “Precios_Actuales.xls”)

Other thing that was intresting that functin support relative path. Ejample: not write   'C:\Mis Documentos\COSTOS\[Precios_Actuales.xls]Precios', just write '.\[Precios_Actuales.xls]Precios', that must work perfectly with pendrives and not, and  Linux  & Windows, etc.

The interoperability respect Excel has change, now  the file “PRECIO TERCEROS 27-01-14.xls” that use a simple porcentual function  show a lots of zeros. Look it in the image “Libreoffice Bug EXCEL.png”..

I see a change in Excel functions work, but i think you can reseolve that quickily with and option in preferentes, where you can select  functions “like” or type.

Thanks a lot  you make a great job. Nicolás.-

I use Windows and Linux (Debian testing with Mint LMDE repositories and Sabayon), i can't probe this bug in the Linux version of Libreoffice, because it's not in repositories at now (day 02/01/2014).

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later): https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Hello Nicolás,
I've opened file PRECIO TERCEROS 27-01-14.xls and I see the values in column "Precio" (not zeros).

Vlokup issue seems to be duplicate of bug 85553 - when I save file as .ods, then I can see the values.

Please, test with actual version of LO and let us know if this bug can be marked as duplicate of bug  85553. Thank you
