Description Svante Schubert 2014-09-09 09:05:34 UTC
Created attachment 105957 [details]
Only occures on Windows (8.1 64bit) with German locale

Loading the test document does not result in rows 1 to 6 and 10th with repeated content, but only a subset.

It does occur on English/Mac, but German/Windows. We assume the locale and formula separation might be involved or the high number of repeated character 32k.

The document is attached.

Setting as NEW, because according to help this function should return max. 255 characters (The result can be a maximum of 255 characters.)

Comment 5 Andreas Heinisch 2021-06-08 11:50:35 UTC
Should we added the same limitation as Excel[1] and adapt the documentation accordingly, or vice versa? The ods-standard[2] specifies an integer for the count.
