Description Stanislav Horacek 2014-06-20 11:52:07 UTC
When deleting a row, some of affected cells are not recalculated and contain incorrect values.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new spreadsheet.
2. Type number 1 to A1, formula "=A1" to B1 and "=B1" to C1.
3. Delete entire column A.

Observed: Cell A1 (former B1) gets #REF! value, whereas 1 remains in B1 (former C1).

Expected: Both A1 and B1 cells should have #REF! value.

The issue does not appear if A1 cell is deleted only (not entire column) or if an entire row is deleted (if we use A1, A2, A3 instead of A1, B1, C1).

Tested in 4.2 series (from beta 2 to 4.2.5 RC1), 4.3 beta2 and 4.3 RC1. Previous series are not affected.

Severity set to major as this leads to incorrect values in a spreadsheet.

I close "duplicate" as bug 59108
Feel free to reopen with more information if necessary

reopening - this is a different issues. Bug 59108 wants to preserve values instead of #REF!, here I want the cell to be recalculated as #REF! instead of numeric value.

Maybe I should have added that you can see the problem if you recalculate the sheet (Ctrl+Shift+F9) - after that, value 1 in B1 changes to the correct #REF!

(Note also that 59108 was reported against 4.0.3, this one appeared in 4.2.)
