An OpenDocument formula expression shall adhere to the expression syntax defined in chapter 4. It may use subsets or supersets of OpenFormula.
Note 2: This specification defines formulas in terms of a canonical text representation used for exchange. If formulas are contained in XML attributes some characters shall be escaped as required by the XML specification (e.g., the character & shall be escaped in XML attributes using notations such as &). All string and character literals references by this specification are in the value space defined by [UNICODE] thus, “A” is U+0041, “Z” is U+005A, and the range of characters “AZ” is the range U+0041 through U+005A inclusive.

B)It shall implement the syntax defined in these sections on syntax: Criteria 4.11.11; Basic Expressions 5.2; Constant Numbers 5.3; Constant Strings 5.4; Operators 5.5; Functions and Function Parameters 5.6; Nonstandard Function Names 5.7; References 5.8; Simple Named Expressions ; Errors 5.12; Whitespace 5.14.
C)It shall implement all implicit conversions for the types it implements, at least Text 6.3.14, Conversion to Number 6.3.5, Reference , Conversion to Logical 6.3.12, and when an expression returns an Error.
D)It shall implement the following operators (which are all the operators except reference union (~)): Infix Operator Ordered Comparison ("<", "<=", ">", ">=") 6.3.5; Infix Operator "&” 6.4.10; Infix Operator "+” 6.4.2; Infix Operator "” 6.4.3; Infix Operator "*” 6.4.4; Infix Operator "/” 6.4.5; Infix Operator "^” 6.4.6; Infix Operator "=” 6.4.7; Infix Operator "<>” 6.4.8; Postfix Operator “%” 6.4.14; Prefix Operator “+” 6.4.15; Prefix Operator “” 6.4.16; Infix Operator Reference Intersection ("!") 6.4.12; Infix Operator Range (":") 6.4.11.

Note: The following functions are documented by this specification, but not included even in the Large group:CELL 6.13.3 ; DOLLAR 6.20.7
•There need not be a distinguishable Logical type. Applications may have a Logical type distinct from Number and Text (see Distinct Logical 8.2), but Logical values may also be represented by the Number type using the values 1 (TRUE) and 0 (FALSE). This means that functions that take number sequences (such as SUM) may but need not include true and false values in the sequence.
•Applications vary on the set of Errors they support. In this specification the only distinguished Error is #N/A; all other errors are simply errors, allowing applications to choose the Error set that best meets their needs.
•In this specification, string index positions start from 1. Users of applications with string index positions starting from 0 shall add and subtract 1 on import/export of this format, as appropriate.
•Database criteria match patterns (such as the pattern matching language for text) have historically varied: Some support glob syntax (e.g., a*b is a, followed by 0 or more characters, followed by b), while others support traditional regular expression syntax (e.g., a*b is zero or more a’s, followed by b). This specification supports both pattern languages.
Note 2: Interoperability is improved by the use of the DATE 6.10.2 and TIME 6.10.17 functions or the textual [ISO8601] date representation because dates in that format do not rely upon epoch or localespecific settings.
In an OpenDocument file, calculation settings impact formula recalculation, which can be the same or different from a particular application's defaults. These include whether or not text comparisons are casesensitive, or if search criteria apply to the whole cell.
Expressions in OpenFormula shall be evaluated by application of the following rules:
1)If an expression consists of a constant Number (5.3), a constant String (5.4), a Reference (5.8), constant Error (per section 5.12), the value of that type is returned.
2)If an expression consists of one or more operations, apply the operators in order of precedence and associativity as defined by Table 1 in 5.5 (Operators). Precedence of operators may be altered by the use of "(" (LEFT PARENTHESES, U+0028) and ")" (RIGHT PARENTHESES, U+0029) to group operators. Evaluate the operator as described in Operator and Function Evaluation, 3.2.3.
3)If an expression consists of a function call (5.6, 5.7), evaluate the function as described in Operator and Function Evaluation, 3.2.3.
4)If an expression consists of a named expression (5.11), the result of evaluating the named expression is returned.
5)If an expression consists of a QuotedLabel (5.10), AutomaticIntersection (5.10.6), or Array (5.13), its value is returned. Expression Syntax 5
Once evaluation has completed:
1.If the result is a Reference and a single nonreference value is needed, it is converted to the referenced value, using the rules of NonScalar Evaluation, 3.3, 1.2.
2.If the result an Array, for the display area, apply the rules of NonScalar Evaluation, 3.3, 1.1.
Nonscalar values passed as arguments to functions are evaluated by intersection or iteration.
1)Evaluation as an implicit intersection of the argument with the expression's evaluation position.
2.2)Calculations with nonscalar inputs are a generalization of (2.1).
The following properties are hostdefined:
4.HOSTAUTOMATICFINDLABELS: if true, row and column labels are automatically found.
8.HOSTNULLDATE: Defines the beginning of the epoch; a numeric date of 0 equals this date.
10. HOSTITERATIONSTATUS: If enabled, iterative calculations of cyclic references are performed.
The function HOSTREFERENCERESOLVER(Reference) is implementationdefined. This function takes as input a Unicode string containing a Reference according to section 4.8 and returns a resolved value.
Some functions' dependencies are difficult to determine and/or should be recalculated more frequently. These include functions that return today's date or time, random number generator functions (such as RAND 6.16.50), or ones that indirectly determine the cells to act on. Many implementations always recalculate formulas including such functions whenever a recalculation occurs. Functions that are always recalculated whenever a recalculation occurs are termed volatile functions. Functions that are often volatile functions include CELL 6.13.3, HYPERLINK 6.11.3, INDIRECT 6.14.7, INFO 6.13.13, NOW 6.10.15, OFFSET 6.14.11, RAND 6.16.50 and TODAY 6.10.19. Functions that depend on the cell position of the formula they are contained in or the position of a cell they reference need to be recalculated whenever that cell is moved, such functions are COLUMN 6.13.4, ROW 6.13.29 and SHEET 6.13.31. In addition, formulas may indicate that they should always be recalculated during a recalculation process by including a forced recalculation marker, as described in the syntax below.
Evaluators which claim to support “basic limits” shall support at least the following limits:
2.at least 30 parameters per function when the function prototype permits a list of parameters.
3.permit strings of ASCII characters of up to 32,767 (2^151) characters.
All values defined by OpenFormula have a type. OpenFormula defines Text 4.2, Number 4.3, Complex Number 4.4, Logical 4.5, Error 4.6, Reference 4.8, ReferenceList 4.9 and Array 4.10 types.
A Text value (also called a string value) is a Character string as specified in [CharModel].
A text value of length zero is termed the empty string.
Index positions in a text value begin at 1.
Whether or not Unicode Normalization [UTR15] is performed on formulas, formula results or user inputs is implementationdefined. Some functions defined in OpenFormula are labeled as "normalizationsensitive", meaning that the results of the formula evaluation may differ depending on whether normalization occurs, and which normalization form is used. Mixing operands of different normalization forms in the same calculation is undefined.
Implementations typically support many subtypes of Number, including Date, Time, DateTime, Percentage, fixedpoint arithmetic, and arithmetic supporting arbitrarily long integers, and determine the display format from this. All such Number subtypes shall yield TRUE for the ISNUMBER 6.13.22 function.
Note: This specification does not require that specific subtypes be distinguishable from each other, or that the subtype be tracked, but in practice most implementations do such tracking because requiring users to manually format every cell appropriately becomes tedious very quickly. Automatically determining the most likely subtype is especially important for a good user interface when generating OpenDocument format, since some subtypes (such as date, time, and currency) are stored in a different manner depending on their subtype. Thus, this specification identifies some common subtypes and identifies those subtypes where relevant in some function definitions, as an aid to implementing good user interfaces. Many applications vary in the subtype produced when combining subtypes (e.g., what is the result when percentages are multiplied together), so unless otherwise noted these are unspecified. Typical implementations try to heuristically determine the "right" format for a cell when a formula is first created, based on the operations in the formula. Users can then override this format, so as a result the heuristics are not important for data exchange (and thus outside the scope of this specification).
All Number subtypes shall yield TRUE for the ISNUMBER function.
Time is represented as a fraction of a day.
Date is represented by an integer value.
Evaluators shall support all dates from 19040101 through 99991231 (inclusive) in calculations, should support dates from 18991230 through 99991231 (inclusive) and may support a wider date range.
Note 2: It is implementationdefined if the year 1900 is treated as a leap year.
DateTime is a subtype of Number. It is a Date plus Time.
Applications may have a Logical type distinct from both Number and Text (see 4.5 Logical (Boolean)), but Logical values may also be represented by the Number type using the values 1 (True) and 0 (False). (see 8.2 Distinct Logical for details)
A complex number may, but need not be, represented as a Number or Text. The results of the functions ISNUMBER() 6.13.22 and ISTEXT() 6.13.25 are implementationdefined when applied to a complex number.
Functions and operators that accept complex numbers shall accept Text values as complex numbers (Conversion to Complex Number 6.3.10), as well as Numbers that are not complex numbers.
Note 1: IMSUM("3i";4) will produce the same result as COMPLEX(4;3).
Note 2: Expression authors should be aware that use of functions that are not defined by OpenFormula as accepting complex numbers as input may impair interoperability.
Equality can be tested using IMSUB to compute the difference, use IMABS to find the absolute difference, and then ensure the absolute difference is smaller than or equal to some nonnegative value (for exact equality, compare for equality with 0).
Applications may have a Logical type distinct from both Number and Text, but Logical values may also be represented by the Number type using the values 1 (True) and 0 (False) (see 4.3.7 Logical (Number)). (see 8.2 Distinct Logical for details)
An Error is one of a set of possible error values. Implementations may have many different error values (see 5.12), but one error value in particular is distinct: #N/A, the result of the NA() function. Users may choose to enter some data values as #N/A, so that this error value propagates to any other formula that uses it, and may test for this using the function ISNA().
Functions and operators that receive one or more error values as an input shall produce one of those input error values as their result, except when the formula or operator is specifically defined to do otherwise.
In an OpenDocument document, if an error value is the result of a cell computation it shall be stored as if it was a string. That is, the office:valuetype (OpenDocument Part 3, 19.389) of an error value is string; if the computed value is stored, it is stored in the attribute office:stringvalue (OpenDocument Part 3, 19.383).
Note: This does not change an Error into a string type (since the Error will be restored on recalculation); this enables applications which cannot recalculate values to display the error information.
A cell position is the location of a single cell at the intersection of a column and a row.
A cell strip consists of cell positions in the same row and in one or more contiguous columns.
A cell rectangle consists of cell positions in the same cell strips of one or more contiguous rows.
Cell positions in a cell cuboid/rectangle/strip can resolve to empty cells (section 4.7).
The definitions of specific operations and functions that allow references as operands and parameters stipulate any particular limitations there are on forms of references and how empty cells, when permitted, are interpreted.
A reference list cannot be converted to an array.
A DateParam is a value that is either a Number (interpreted as a serial number; 4.3.3) or Text; text is automatically converted to a date value. 6.3.15
A TimeParam is a value that is either a Number (interpreted as a serial number; 4.3.2) or Text; text is automatically converted to a time value (fraction of a day). 6.3.16
TextOrNumber is a value that is either a Number or Text.
A basis is a subtype of Integer that specifies the daycount convention to be used in a calculation.
This standard defines five daycount conventions, corresponding to widely used current and historical accounting conventions. Each of these five bases defines two things:
1.How to calculate the number of days between two dates, date1 and date2.
2.How to calculate the number of days in each year between two dates, date1 and date2.
Historically daycount bases used the naming convention x/y, which indicated that the convention assumed x days per month and y days per year. These names are given for reference purposes.
Date Basis  Historical Name  Day Count  Days in Year 
0  US (NASD) 30/360  Procedure A, 4.11.7.3  Procedure D, 4.11.7.6 
1  Actual/Actual  Procedure B, 4.11.7.4  Procedure E, 4.11.7.7 
2  Actual/360  Procedure B, 4.11.7.4  Procedure D, 4.11.7.6 
3  Actual/365  Procedure B, 4.11.7.4  Procedure F, 4.11.7.8 
4  European 30/360  Procedure C, 4.11.7.5  Procedure D, 4.11.7.6 
The daycount procedures are expressed using notations defined as:
•day(date) returns the day of the month for the given date value, an integer from 1 to 31
•month(date) returns the month of a given date value, an integer from 112
•year(date) returns the year of the given date value
•truncate(date) truncates any fractional (hours, minutes, seconds) of a date value and returns the whole date portion.
•Binary comparison operators date1>date2 and date1 == date2
•isleapyear(year) returns true if year is a leap year, otherwise false.
Note: Some of the day count procedures use intermediate results that contain counterfactual dates, such as February 30th. This is not an error. The above functions work on such dates as well, e.g., day(February 30th) == 30.
5.If day(date1)==30 and day(date2)==31 then subtract 1 day from date2
6.If both date1 and date2 are the last day of February, change date2 to the 30th of the month.
7.If date1 is the last day of February, change it to the 30th of the month.
8.Otherwise, if A and isleapyear(year(date1)) then return 366
9.Otherwise, if a February 29 occurs between date1 and date2 then return 366
A reference to an empty cell is interpreted as the numeric value 0.
•A Number or Logical value. A matching cell content equals the Number or Logical value.
•A value beginning with a comparator (<, <=, >, >=) 6.4.9 or an infix operator (=, <>). = 6.4.7, <> 6.4.8
For =, if the value is empty it matches empty cells. Empty cell 4.7, = 6.4.7
For <>, if the value is empty it matches nonempty cells. <> 6.4.8
For <>, if the value is not empty it matches any cell content except the value, including empty cells.
Note: "=0" does not match empty cells.
For = and <>, if the value is not empty and can not be interpreted as a Number type or one of its subtypes and the hostdefined property HOSTSEARCHCRITERIAMUSTAPPLYTOWHOLECELL is true, comparison is against the entire cell contents, if false, comparison is against any subpart of the field that matches the criteria. For = and <>, if the value is not empty and can not be interpreted as a Number type or one of its subtypes 3.4 applies.
•Other Text value. If the hostdefined property HOSTSEARCHCRITERIAMUSTAPPLYTOWHOLECELL is true, the comparison is against the entire cell contents, if false, comparison is against any subpart of the field that matches the criteria.
Evaluators should match the database field name caseinsensitively.
A criteria is a rectangular set of values, with at least one column and two rows, that selects matching records from a database. The first row lists fields against which expressions will be matched. 4.11.10 Rows after the first row contain fields with expressions for matching against database records.
For a record to be selected from a database, all of the expressions in a criteria row shall match.
A reference to an empty cell is interpreted as the numeric value 0.
•Expressions are matched as per 4.11.8 Criterion.
When evaluating a function that accepts a sequence, the evaluator shall follow the rules for that sequence as defined in section 6.3. When processing a ReferenceList, the references are processed in order (first, second if any, and so on). In a cuboid, the first sheet is first processed, followed by later sheets (if any) in order. Inside a sheet, it is implementationdefined as to whether the values are processed rowatatime or columnatatime, but it shall be one of these two processing orders. If processing rowatatime, the sequence shall be produced by processing each row in turn, from smallest to largest column value (e.g., A1, B1, C1). If processing columnatatime, the sequence shall be produced by processing each column at a time, from the smallest to the largest row value (e.g., A1, A2, A3).
Any represents a value of any type defined in this standard, including Error values.
The OpenFormula syntax is defined using the BNF notation of the XML specification, chapter 6 [XML1.0]. Each syntax rule is defined using "::=".
Note: Formulas are typically embedded inside an XML document. When this occurs, characters (such as "<", ">", '"', and "&") shall be escaped, as described in section 2.4 of the XML specification [XML1.0]. In particular, the lessthan symbol "<" is typically represented as “<”, the doublequote symbol as “"”, and the ampersand symbol as “&” (alternatively, a numeric character reference can be used).
Expressed as a grammar in BNF notation, a formula is specified:
Expression InfixOp Expression 
FunctionName '(' ParameterList ')' 
SingleQuoted ::= "'" ([^']  "''")+ "'"
'.' [09]+ ([eE] [+]? [09]+)?
StandardNumber ::= [09]+ ('.' [09]+)? ([eE] [+]? [09]+)?
String ::= '"' ([^"#x00]  '""')* '"'
Operators are functions with one or more parameters.
InfixOp ::= ArithmeticOp  ComparisonOp  StringOp  ReferenceOp
ArithmeticOp ::= '+'  ''  '*'  '/'  '^'
ComparisonOp ::= '='  '<>'  '<'  '>'  '<='  '>='
ReferenceOp ::= IntersectionOp  ReferenceConcatenationOp  RangeOp
ReferenceConcatenationOp ::= '~'
Table 1  Operators defines the associativity and precedence of operators, from highest to lowest precedence.
Table 1  Operators
Associativity  Operator(s)  Comments 
left  :  Range. 
left  !  Reference intersection ([.A1:.C4]![.B1:.B5] is [.B1:.B4]). Displayed as the space character in some implementations. 
left  ~  Reference union. Note: Displayed as the function parameter separator in some implementations. 
right  +,  Prefix unary operators, e.g., 5 or [.A1]. Note that these have a different precedence than add and subtract. 
left  %  Postfix unary operator % (divide by 100). Note that this is legal with expressions (e.g., [.B1]%). 
left  ^  Power (2 ^ 3 is 8). 
left  *,/  Multiply, divide. 
left  +,  Binary operations add, subtract. Note that unary (prefix) + and  have a different precedence. 
left  &  Binary operation string concatenation. Note that unary (prefix) + and  have a different precedence. Note that "&" shall be escaped when included in an XML document 
left  =, <>, <, <=,  Comparison operators equal to, not equal to, less than, less than or equal to, greater than, greater than or equal to 
FunctionName ::= LetterXML (LetterXML  DigitXML 
'_'  '.'  CombiningCharXML)*
Where LetterXML, DigitXML, and CombiningCharXML are Letter, Digit, and CombiningChar as they are defined in [XML1.0].
Function names are caseinsensitive.
Function calls shall be given a parameter list, though it may be empty. An empty list of parameters is considered a call with 0 parameters, not a call with one parameter that happens to be empty. TRUE() is syntactically a function call with 0 parameters. It is syntactically legitimate to provide empty parameters, though functions need not accept empty parameters unless otherwise noted:
ParameterList ::= /* empty */ 
Parameter (Separator EmptyOrParameter )* 
Separator EmptyOrParameter /* First param empty */
(Separator EmptyOrParameter )*
EmptyOrParameter ::= /* empty */ Whitespace*  Parameter
Parameter ::= Expression
Separator ::= ';'
References refer to a specific cell or set of cells. The syntax for a constant reference:
Reference ::= '[' (Source? RangeAddress)  ReferenceError ']'
SheetLocatorOrEmpty ::= SheetLocator  /* empty */
SheetLocator ::= SheetName ('.' SubtableCell)*
SheetName ::= QuotedSheetName  '$'? [^\]\. #$']+
QuotedSheetName ::= '$'? SingleQuoted
SubtableCell ::= ( Column Row )  QuotedSheetName
CellAddress ::= SheetLocatorOrEmpty '.' Column Row /* Not used directly */
If a RangeAddress does not contain a Column element or does not contain a Row element, it specifies a cell rectangle (4.8 Reference). If it contains Row elements, the cell rectangle starts on the first column and ends on the last column the evaluator supports. If it contains Column elements, the cell rectangle starts on the first row and ends on the last row the evaluator supports.
If in a RangeAddress the first part (left of ':' colon) contains a SheetLocator and the second part (right of ':' colon) does not contain a SheetLocator, the second part inherits the SheetLocator from the first part.
If a RangeAddress contains two different SheetLocators, it specifies a cell cuboid (4.8 Reference).
If a RangeAddress contains no SheetLocator, the current sheet local to the position where the expression is evaluated is referred.
A reference with an explicit row or column value beyond the capabilities of an evaluator shall be computed as an Error, and not as a reference.
Note that references can include a single embedded “:” separator. Evaluators should use references with embedded “:” separators inside the [..] markers, instead of the generalpurpose “:” operator, when saving files, and, where there is a choice of cells to join, evaluators should choose the leftmost pair.
The optional Source expresses that the reference is to sheets and/or cells in a different location (possibly in a samedocument fragment) from that for the formula in which the reference occurs. The optional Source is also used for locating Named Expressions (section 5.11).
The IRI portion of Source shall be an IRI reference [RFC3987] conforming to the general syntax IRIreference rule (section 2.2 of [RFC3987]) after each pair of consecutive singlequote characters (APOSTROPHE, U+0027) is replaced by one single singlequote character.
Note: The escaping of singlequotes as paired singlequotes is because the IRI is enclosed in single quote characters of the Source.
Resolution of the [RFC3987] IRI reference is hostdefined behavior. 3.4
A reference list is the result of the Infix Operator Reference Concatenation 6.4.13 '~', the syntax is:
ReferenceList ::= Reference (Whitespace* ReferenceConcatenationOp Whitespace* Reference)*
A reference list can be passed as an argument to functions expecting a reference parameter where passing one reference results in an identical computation as an arbitrary sequence of single references occupying the identical cell range. A reference list cannot be converted to an array.
A quoted label identifies a column or a row, depending on the label range in which its text appears.
2.Else, Match2 (right and/or below) has the smallest or an equal distance:
Note: Use of automatically looked up column or row labels in expressions impairs interoperability.
Row  Data  Expression  Result  Comment  
 =SUM('Label')  3  Empty cell in row 2 is skipped (two empty cells in row 2 and 3 would not be skipped and would stop the automatic range), empty cell in row 5 stops the automatic range. 
If any cell content is entered in row 5 the range is regenerated as follows:
Row  Data  Expression  Result  Comment  
 =SUM('Label')  15  Empty cell in row 2 is skipped, empty cell in row 7 stops the automatic range. 
AutomaticIntersection ::= QuotedLabel Whitespace* '!!' Whitespace* QuotedLabel

SheetLocalNamedExpression  ExternalNamedExpression
SimpleNamedExpression ::= Identifier 
'$$' (Identifier  SingleQuoted)
SheetLocalNamedExpression ::=
QuotedSheetName '.' SimpleNamedExpression
ExternalNamedExpression ::=

Expressions should limit the names of their identifiers to only ([UNICODE]) letters, underscores, and digits, not including patterns that look like cell references or the words True or False.
Identifier ::= ( LetterXML
(LetterXML  DigitXML  '_'  CombiningCharXML)* )
 ( [AZaz]+[09]+ )
 ([Tt][Rr][Uu][Ee])  ([Ff][Aa][Ll][Ss][Ee])
Error names shall have the following syntax:
Error ::= '#' [AZ09]+ ([!?]  ('/' ([AZ]  ([09] [!?]))))
Specific Errors are indicated by their corresponding names.
Table 4 is a list of Errors that are used by several existing implementations.
Table 4  Possible Other Constant Error Names

#DIV/0!  Attempt to divide by zero, including division by an empty cell. ERROR.TYPE of 2 6.13.11 
#NAME?  Unrecognized/deleted name. ERROR.TYPE of 5.

Evaluators may implement other Errors.
Evaluators should use a humancomprehensible name, not a numeric id, for Error names they write.

OpenFormula defines commonly used operators and functions.
For every function or operator, the following are defined in this specification:
•Summary: One sentence briefly describing the function or operator.
–Components surrounded by [ ... ] are optional. Optional components may be omitted.
–An optional parameter followed by the = symbol has the default value given after the equal sign.
–Parameters are separated with a semicolon (";"), as per the OpenFormula expression syntax 5.6.
When a function is given a value of a different type, the parameters are first converted using the implicit conversion rules before the function operates on its parameters.
Evaluators may extend functions by permitting fewer or additional parameters, which documents may use. Extended functions may result in a lack of interoperability.
•Returns: Return type (e.g., Number, Text, Logical, Reference).
•Constraints: A description of constraints, in addition to the constraints imposed by the parameter types. If there are no additional constraints beyond those imposed by the parameter types, this is "None". If a constraint is not met, the function/operator shall return an Error unless otherwise noted.
•Semantics: This text describes what the function/operator does.
If a parameter is a pseudotype, but the provided value fails to meet the requirements for that type, the behavior is implementationdefined.
Note: Functions and operators are defined by mathematical formulas or by an OpenFormula formula. Formulas define the correct result, and not the algorithm for calculation. Since computing systems have limited precision and range of numbers, some functions cannot or should not be naively implemented as their formulas suggest. This specification defines the mathematically correct answer, and allows implementors to choose the best algorithm that will meet that definition.
•Comment: Explanatory comment.
•See also A list of related operators and functions.
The implicit conversion operators omit many of these items, e.g., the syntax (since there is none).
To convert to a scalar, if the value is of type:
•reference to a single cell: obtain the value of the referenced cell, and return that value.
•reference to more than one cell: do an implied intersection, 6.3.3, to determine which single cell to use, then handle as a reference to a single cell.
•Intersect this with the provided reference to multiple cells
•If a single cell is referenced; return it; otherwise, return an Error.
See also NonScalar Evaluation 3.3
If the expected type is Number, then if the value is of type:
•Text: The specific conversion is implementationdefined; an evaluator may return 0, an Error value, or the results of its attempt to convert the Text value to a Number (and fall back to 0 or Error if it fails to do so). Evaluators may apply VALUE 6.13.34 or some other function to do this conversion, should they choose to do so. Conversion depends on the actual locale the application runs in, especially if group or decimal separators are involved.
•Reference: If the reference covers more than one cell, do an implied intersection to determine which cell to use. Then obtain the value of the single cell and perform the rules as above. If the calculation setting “precisionasshown” is true, then convert the number to the closest possible representation of the displayed number. If the cell is empty (blank), use 0 (zero) as the value. Evaluators may choose to convert references to Text in a different manner than they handle converting embedded Text to a Number.
If the expected type is Integer for a function or operator, apply the “Conversion to Number” operation. 6.3.5 Then, if the result is a Number but not an integer, apply the specific conversion from Number to integer specified by that particular function/operator. If the function or operator does not specify any particular conversion operation, then the conversion from a noninteger Number into an integer is implementationdefined.
Many different conversions from a noninteger number into an integer are possible. The conversion direction may be towards negative infinity, towards positive infinity, towards zero, away from zero, towards the nearest even number, or towards the nearest odd number. A conversion can select the nearest integer, the nearest even or odd integer, or the “next” integer in the given direction if it is not already an integer. If a conversion selects the nearest integer, a direction is still needed (for when a value is halfway between two integers). In this specification, this conversion is referred to as “rounding” or “truncation”; these terms by themselves do not specify any specific operation.
If a function specifies its rounding operation using a series of capital letters, the function defined in this specification for that function is used to do the conversion to integer. Common such functions are:
•INT, which if given noninteger rounds down to the next integer towards negative infinity, regardless of whether or not it is the closest integer.
•ROUND, which if given noninteger rounds to the nearest integer. If the input number is halfway between integers, it rounds away from zero.
•TRUNC, which if given noninteger rounds towards zero, regardless of whether or not that integer is the closest integer.
If the expected type is NumberSequence, then if value is of type:
•Number, Text, or Logical, handle as Conversion to Number 6.3.5 (creating a sequence of length 1).
•reference, create a sequence of numbers from the values of the referenced cells that only includes the values of type Number or Error. Thus, Empty cells and Text that could be converted into a value are not included in a number sequence. If the Logical type is a distinguished type from the Number type, it should not be included in the sequence of numbers; if the Logical type is not a distinguished type, then such values will (of course) be included in the number sequence.
Identical to Conversion to NumberSequence 6.3.7, with the addition that instead of a Reference also a ReferenceList is accepted as argument. Each Reference in the list is converted to a NumberSequence in the order of occurrence.
Identical to Conversion to NumberSequence 6.3.7 except that each element in the list represents a serial date value of subtype Date.
An evaluator may accept complex numbers as Text, Number, or a different distinguishable type.
•Number that is not complex, use the Number with 0 as the imaginary part.
•Text, attempt to convert to complex number using VALUE 6.13.34. If it is a number that is not complex, use it. If the text matches one of these patterns, accept it:
([+]?Number [+])?Number[ij]
[+]?Number[ij]
•Logical, convert to Number and then handle as Number.
•reference: Convert to Scalar 6.3.2, then use the rules above. If the reference is to an empty cell, consider it equal to 0.
If the expected type is ComplexSequence, then if value is of type:
•Number, Text, or Logical, handle as Conversion to Complex Number (creating a sequence of length 1).
If the expected type is Logical, then if value is of type:
If the expected type is LogicalSequence, then if value is of type:
If the expected type is Text, then if value is of type:
If the expected type is the pseudotype DateParam, then if value is of type:
•Text, pass to DATEVALUE 6.10.4, and if nonError, return it. If DATEVALUE would return an Error, an evaluator may attempt to convert to a Number in other ways (such as by calling VALUE 6.13.34); this is implementationdefined. If the evaluator cannot convert to Number, it returns an Error.
•Logical, the result is implementationdefined, either a Number or Error
•Reference: perform conversion to scalar, then perform as above. If the cell is empty, return 0.
If the expected type is the pseudotype TimeParam, then if value is of type:
•Text, pass to TIMEVALUE 6.10.18, and if nonError, return it. If TIMEVALUE would return an Error, an evaluator may attempt to convert to a Number in other ways (such as by calling VALUE 6.13.34); this is implementationdefined. If the evaluator cannot convert to Number, it returns an Error.
•Logical, the result is implementationdefined, either a Number or Error
•Reference: perform conversion to scalar, then perform as above. If the cell is empty, return 0.

Semantics: Converts given Text value X into Number. If X is a Reference, it is first dereferenced.
X is transformed according to the following rules:
4.If the first character of the resulting string is a period FULL STOP (U+002E) then prepend a zero
5.If the string ends in one or more instances of PERCENT SIGN (U+0025) , remove the percent sign(s)
If percent signs were removed in step 5, divide the value of the returned number by 100 for each percent sign removed. If the resulting string is a valid xsd:float, then return the number corresponding to that string, according to the definition provided in XML Schema, Part 2, Section 3.2.4.
If the string is not a valid xsd:float then return an error.

Summary: Uses an index to return a value from a list of values.
Syntax: CHOOSE( Integer Index ; { Any Value }+ )
Summary: Return a value from a data pilot table.
Note: This function has two syntaxes. The first of these is the preferred syntax, while the second, alternative syntax is provided for compatibility reasons.
Syntax: GETPIVOTDATA( Text DataField ; Reference Table { ; Text FieldName ; Scalar Member }* )
Note: This version of the syntax is distinguished by the parameter Table being the second parameter.
Returns: Any
Semantics: Returns a single result from the calculation of a data pilot table.
The data pilot table is selected by Table, which is a reference to a cell or cell range that's within a data pilot table or contains a data pilot table. If the cell range contains several data pilot tables, the last one in the order of <table:datapilottable> elements (OpenDocument, Part 3, 9.6.3) in the file is used.
DataField selects one of the data pilot table's data fields. It can be the name of the source column, or the given name of the data field (such as “Sum of Sales”).
If no FieldName/Member pairs are given, the grand total is returned. Otherwise, each pair adds a constraint that the result shall satisfy. FieldName is the name of a field from the data pilot table. Member is the name of a member (item) from that field. If a member is a number, Member can alternatively be its numerical value.
If the data pilot table contains only a single result value that fulfills all of the constraints, or a subtotal result that summarizes all matching values, that result is returned. If there is no matching result, or several ones without a subtotal for them, an Error is returned. These conditions apply to results that are included in the data pilot table. If the source data contains entries that are hidden by settings of the data pilot table, they are ignored. The order of the FieldName/Member pairs is not significant. Field and member names are caseinsensitive.
If no constraint for a page field is given, the field's selected value is implicitly used. If a constraint for a page field is given, it shall match the field's selected value, or an Error is returned.
Subtotal values from the data pilot table are only used if they use the function “auto” (except when specified in the constraint, see below).
Syntax: GETPIVOTDATA( Reference Table ; Text Constraints )
Note: This version of the syntax is distinguished by the parameter Table being the first parameter.
Returns: Any
Semantics: Returns a single result from the calculation of a data pilot table.
Table has the same meaning as in the preferred syntax.
Constraints is a spaceseparated list. Entries can be quoted (single quotes). One of the entries can be the data field name. The data field name can be left out if the data pilot table contains only one data field, otherwise it shall be present. Each of the other entries specifies a constraint in the form FieldName[Member] (with literal characters “[“ (LEFT SQUARE BRACKET, U+005B) and “]” (RIGHT SQUARE BRACKET U+005D)), or only Member if the member name is unique within all fields that are used in the data pilot table. A function name can be added in the form FieldName[Member;Function], which will cause the constraint to match only subtotal values which use that function. The possible function names are the same as in the table:function attribute of the <table:datapilotsubtotal> element (OpenDocument, Part 3, 19.647.4), caseinsensitive.
The values returned may vary depending upon the HOSTUSEREGULAREXPRESSIONS or HOSTUSEWILDCARDS or HOSTSEARCHCRITERIAMUSTAPPLYTOWHOLECELL properties. 3.4

Summary: Returns a value using a row and column index value (and optionally an area index).
See also AREAS 6.13.2, CHOOSE 6.14.3
Summary: Return a reference given a string representation of a reference.
Syntax: INDIRECT( Text Ref [ ; Logical A1 = TRUE ] )
Constraints: Ref is valid reference
Semantics: Given text for a reference (such as “A3”), returns a reference. If A1 is False, it is interpreted as an R1C1 reference style. For interoperability, if the Ref text includes a sheet name, evaluators should be able to parse both, the “.” dot and the “!” exclamation mark, as the sheet name separator. If evaluators support the A1 = FALSE case of the ADDRESS 6.14.2 function and include the “!” exclamation mark as the sheet name separator, evaluators shall correctly parse that in the A1 = FALSE case of this INDIRECT function. Evaluators shall correctly parse the “.” dot as the sheet name separator in the A1 = TRUE case.
See also ADDRESS 6.14.2
Summary: Look for criterion in an alreadysorted array, and return a corresponding result.
Note: Interoperability is improved by use of HLOOKUP or VLOOKUP in expressions over LOOKUP.

Summary: Finds a Search item in a sequence, and returns its position (starting from 1).
Syntax: MATCH( Scalar Search ; ForceArray ReferenceArray SearchRegion [ ; Integer MatchType = 1 ] )
SearchRegion shall be a vector (a single row or column)
The values returned may vary depending upon the HOSTUSEREGULAREXPRESSIONS or HOSTUSEWILDCARDS or HOSTSEARCHCRITERIAMUSTAPPLYTOWHOLECELL properties. 3.4
See also HLOOKUP 6.14.5, OFFSET 6.14.11, VLOOKUP 6.14.12
Summary: Executes a formula expression while substituting a row reference and a column reference.
•FormulaCell: reference to the cell that contains the formula expression to calculate.

•ColumnCell: reference that is to be replaced by ColumnReplacement.
Note: The function may be used to create tables of expressions that depend on two input parameters.
Example: FormulaCell is B5, RowCell is B3, ColumnCell is B2
