No, the "Basic Mod" behaves different. But you can call the built-in formula from Calc as in Koheis snippet: http://codesnippets.services.openoffice.org/Calc/Calc.UsingBuiltinFunctions.snip And so you get (without much sense in this context): Function getRest( d As Double ) svc = createUnoService( "com.sun.star.sheet.FunctionAccess" ) arg = array( d, Sgn(d)) getRest = svc.callFunction( "MOD", arg ) End Function Again just another way. It might be more helpful for more complex Calc-Formulas.
