This function ENCODEURL() is already a part of "Microsoft Excel". We need to implement it in Libreoffice Calc

Thanks for bringing this bug report to my attention.

I will start on it as soon as I finish fixing the bug I'm currently working on.

BTW, being an enhancement, it will only be available starting with version 4.5 as version 4.4 is already in its beta stage.
