Bug 84436 - Spreadsheet SUM workaround
 Brad Waters 2014-09-28 22:10:20 UTC `After much frustration I realized that the expression "=SUM(A10,A20,A30)" doesn't work because the function does not work when referring to lines that include zero's. The workaround is to shift the input position down so that you have "=SUM(A11,A21,A31)", etc. This is true for versions 4.3.2.2 and 3.6.6.2 with Mac OSX Maverick.` m.a.riosv 2014-09-28 22:19:11 UTC `Please could you attach a sample file with the issue.` Brad Waters 2014-09-29 06:32:46 UTC ```Thank you. Here is a sample where the SUM formula works (on the right) but the same formula on the left returns Err:508. If you enter =SUM(a9,a10,a11,a12) on line A14, the error is produced and the command is gone or corrupted.

Remark: the default formula separator is the semicolon not the comma. Did you modify this setting or is it a typo ? Best regards.

I’m willing to give up on this. Perhaps version 4.3.3.0.0.+ on your computer bypasses this problem. Brad Below:Before hitting return.
