Simple demonstration of bug per Description

When a copy and paste is done of a cell with a formula that contains a label, the label is treated as an absolute reference rather than relative reference.

Attached file, CopyPasteWithLabels.ods can be used to demonstrate the problem by the following steps.

1. Copy and paste cell c2 to cell c3. Trace precedents on cell c3 and see that the answer is wrong because in cell c3, the references 'label1' and 'label2' are to row 2 and they should be to row 3.
2. Rather than copying and pasting c2 to c3, type in exact contents of c2 into c3 and the c3 evaluation of the formula gives the correct answer, 43.5.
3. Click the "undo" button and the result in c3 doesn't change back to the incorrect answer, 39, but remains the same, 43.5.

LO works properly and LO exhibits the bug.

Hi @dwyoung, thanks for reporting.

Last working for me:
Version: Build ID: 40ff705089295be5be0aae9b15123f687c05b0a

Only happens copying from top to down not from bottom to up.

Remains only while working with the file after copy.

Hard recalc doesn't help.

The issue disappears saving and reopening.

Both parts of this seem to have begun at the below commit - the changed calculation and the changed precedents

commit bbb2d8c660b515c98624a41a39ffe94d3a7ecc00

    If the formula cell is grouped, update reference only on the top cell.

The fix for Bug 93894 seems to fix this issue as well.
Comment 6 Michael Meeks 2016-10-05 08:14:36 UTC
Testing of Kohei's fix so we can back-port it much appreciated; thanks ! =)
