Trivial spreadsheet in XLSM format, #NAME? on load
When I open an excel XLSM file in LO 126.96.36.199 or OO 4.1.0 all references to functions written in VBA appear as #NAME?
If I open the macro source I can see all of the functions are present and correct and if I make a dummy change to the spreadsheet formula they are then recognized and work correctly, eg Replace all = by =
Requesting recalculation of the sheet is not sufficient to cause recognition.
Perhaps this is a timing window within file load, the check for valid function names is being made before the Basic environment has been fully loaded with macros.
It appears that 95% of the work to be able to read XLSM files has been done and it is a pity to have to resort to tricks to get macros recognized.
The same spreadsheet in XLS format loads with problem

On pc Debian x86-64 with LO Debian package 4.2.5, I could reproduce the problem.
I don't reproduce this with 4.2 sources updated 15 days ago (and with 4.3 sources updated yesterday)
For the test, could you give a try to 4.2.6RC1 http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/?version=4.2.6
If it doesn't work, you also give a try to future 4.2.7 with daily build (see http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/libreoffice-4-2/Win-x86@42/current/)
I am happy to confirm problem no longer exists in 188.8.131.52 and for this bug to be closed
Thank you Bob for your feedback.
I put this to WFM since there's no specific fix.
