Description Rpnpif 2015-07-28 14:38:13 UTC
In some calc file, a formula gets bracketing errors, but there are not real errors, I think.

To reproduce that, load the file from

The formula =(B1*Taux/12*(1+Taux/12)^B3)/(((1+Taux/12)^B3)-1) has bracketing in B4 cell.

If I click on formula icon to edit, then I click on OK, the error disappears. But errors are still here in B12 cell. The automatic calculate and manual with F9 seem not work.

Same procedure with the formula icon on each erroneous cells seems resolve the errors.

This should not be.

Hi @Rpnpif, thanks for reporting.

Even hard recalc doesn't solve the issue, only edit manually does.

Yes still here in, but with a little change :
I must change the formulas, for example, deleting the last bracket then restoring this, to fix the formulas.

So the bug is still here.
