ERROR.TYPE is as defined in ODF OpenFormula and compatible with the
Excel ERROR.TYPE function. It returns specific numbers for certain
errors and otherwise #N/A

ERROR.TYPE return values are:

    1     for #NULL!
    2     for #DIV/0!
    3     for #VALUE!
    4     for #REF!
    5     for #NAME?
    6     for #NUM!
    7     for #N/A
    #N/A  for Anything else

Seems this information is missing in the online help.

ERRORTYPE returns the internal number of any error, like 502 for Err:502 or 532
for #DIV/0 and is only available in LibreOffice.

Already existing formulas simply display the new names. Users would have
to get accustomed though to the changed names if they enter new
