Description Kevin Suo 2014-04-25 14:16:44 UTC
1. New calc, select column A;
2. Edit - Fill - Series:  start value = 1; end value = 10; increment = 1. OK.

Current behaviour:
Calc fills to row #1648576, with "#NUM!" in cells below row #10.

Only A1-A10 is filled.
Calc should detect that the  "end value = 10" so that the last cell to be filled is A10.

Makes sense to me. Marking as NEW.

Kind regards,

Comment 3 Gilward Kukel 2017-01-09 18:01:27 UTC
I think this is a bug (still present in LO, not an enhancement request. The bug always occurs when the series with an end value is shorter than the selected range.
It works in OpenOffice.
Comment 4 Kevin Suo 2017-01-11 09:36:22 UTC
Actually this is a regression. Move from ENHANCEMENT to NORMAL.
It works OK in libreoffice-3.3.0.

I will try to bibisect.

Comment 6 Kevin Suo 2017-01-11 09:58:33 UTC
I am adding bug 48449 as see also because the commits which fixed that bug are the only commits that is between version and which are related to fill series.
Comment 7 Gilward Kukel 2017-01-13 05:57:51 UTC
I think the fault is the code

 else if (bOverflow)
 aCol[nCol].SetError(static_cast<SCROW>(nRow), formula::errIllegalFPOperation);

in the function ScTable::FillSeries
in the file sc\source\core\data\table4.cxx

Comment 8 Xisco Faulí 2017-11-06 17:56:59 UTC
bisect is used when the commit introducing the regression has been identified, which is not the case here...
