### [sc-dev] type logical in Excel

Hi, I just noticed, that Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 distinguish between type Logical and type Number. Is this new in Excel 2007/2010 or did Excel had a separate type Logical before? (I haven't got an older version of Excel and therefore cannot examine it by myself.)

### [sc-dev] Questions about LINEST implementation

Hi all, I have written issue http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=115189 for to attach the first draft of my implementation for LINEST. But there are still a lot of questions. So please have a look at that draft. (Checkmatrix has not essentially changed, but you need this version with correct n and m, if you will test my solution.) (A) The algorithm for nCase==2 and nCase==3 are nearly equal besides the fact, that the matrices of X and Y values are transposed. How should I handle this? (1) Write all functions in two variants? Then the functions are small and have only one purpose, but the code becomes very long. (2) Introduce a switch between both cases on every place needed. Then the code will become shorter, but the functions become more complex and during execution the very same case distinction is made a lot of times. (3) Transpose the matrices X and Y and then use only one case. That will give short and good maintainable code. But you need double place in memory. How large are those matrices in reality? Is double place in memory possible? (B) The functions TREND and GROWTH are calculated with the same mathematical solution. Shall I change them in the same way? Then the methods calculate2 and calculate3 would be obsolete. (C) Currently all helper functions are defined as local function and not as methods of ScInterpreter. Do you like to see any of this local functions to become a ScInterpreter method? In the actual implementation the helper functions are all ScInterpreter methods. Why? (D) What kind of boolean type shall I use? I have now used bool locally. But for example in void ScInterpreter::CalulateRGPRKP(BOOL _bRKP) a change to bool_bRKP would change the declaration. I would have to change it in interpr.hxx too. Does that harm? (E) Often it has to be tested, whether a matrix was created properly by calling GetNewMat or when pop from stack. Shall I use if(pMatrix) or if(pMatrix.Is())? Shall I use errStackOverflow, if GetNewMat does not create the matrix? (F) QR-decomposition with Householder transformation is a common mathematical method. But it might be necessary to explain the concrete implementation. Please have a look. Shall I omit such comments and attach a separate, commented version to the issue or even write a full text? (G) My implementation of LINEST uses X-MeansX and Y-MeanY instead of adding a column with 1 to the X values, which you will find in the description in the ODF spec. Does this need a separate documentation? Kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

### [sc-dev] Shortcomings in ScInterpreter::CheckMatrix

Hi all, CheckMatrix is used for LINEST/LOGEST and for TREND/GROWTH. It checks whether the input matrices have correct size and content, generates the default matrix for an empty MatX, changes Y to log(Y) in case LOGEST and GROWTH, determines the size of the input matrices for output parameter nCX, nCY, nRX, nRY, the number of variables for output parameter M, and the number of observations for output parameter N. But this is not done consistent. In case of simple regression (nCase==1) the values M and N are not set correctly, but the initial value 0 is returned. In case of an emtpy MatX the values for nCX and nRX are only set in case of TREND/GROWTH. Currently this gives no error, because the loops do not run over N, M, nCX, or nRX but over nCY and nRY and the value for N is determined in that loops again. I struggle about this, because I want to use N and M in my solution for LINEST, to test, whether there are enough observations at all. I want to change CheckMatrix, so that N, M, nCX, nRX are set correctly in all cases. The parameter 'BOOL _bTrendGrowth' is then no longer needed and can be removed (otherwise it will produce a compiler warning). Do you agree with those changes?

### [sc-dev] Calc does not detect singularity

I guess, that the wrong notation in upper, left cell is already tracked in issue 114125. But I think, Calc should not return #NUM! or #VALUE! at all, but Err:502 (illegal argument), because the matrix is singular. The LU decomposition has a zero in the diagonal, so it is possible to detect this case. Excel and Gnumeric return #NUM! in the whole range. Fill A1:D4 with 1 2 3 4 3 6 9 12 9 18,127 36 12,124 36 48 Calculate =MINVERSE(A1:D4) I get in full science notation -6,809917355371900E+001 -1,652892561983470E+001 0,000E+000 1,000E+001 -5,150539867109620E+001 -1,293916112956810E+001 9,860E+000 -5,177106436424810E-014 1,926351720312250E+015 -6,421172401040780E+014 1,670843776116550E-002 -1,408521303258110E+000 -1,444763790234140E+015 4,815879300780690E+014 -5,012531328320800E+000 -1,443609022556390E+000 which is in two decimal place notation -68,10 -16,53 0,0010,00 -51,51 -12,94 10,00 0,00 1926351720312250,00 -642117240104078,00 0,02-1,41 -1444763790234140,00481587930078069,00 -5,01 -1,44 If the user sees this result, he will be cautious. But it might be hidden as intermediate part of a larger formula. So the user does not notice that the result is totally wrong. LINEST needs calculating an inverse matrix for the statistics, but does of cause do not show the matrix but the statistics, so that the user might not detect, that the values are wrong. Gnumeric returns #ZAHL! errors and Excel returns the same wrong values as Calc.

### [sc-dev] Trouble with ScInterpreter::MFastMult

Hi all, in interpr5.cxx you find void ScInterpreter::MFastMult(ScMatrix* pA, ScMatrix* pB, ScMatrix* pR, SCSIZE n, SCSIZE m, SCSIZE l) // Multipliziert n x m Mat a mit m x l Mat b nach Mat r But actually it calculates R = B * A and A has size m x n and B has size l x m. I need a helper method for multiplying two matrices, so I used it as the comment describes. It took me some time to recognize that this method was the reason for the dimension errors I get. Searching with OpenGrok I find no place, where the method MFastMult is actually used. As far as I see it had been used in the old version of LUP decomposition which was changed with CWS dr37. So what to do? (1) Change the method to work as the comment describes. or (2) Change the comment to describe, what the method actually does. or (3) Delete the method totally and write my own local routine. or (4) Ignore the method and write my own local routine. or something else? I prefer (1). Kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

The interpreter allows these cases because in Excel the missing parameter is allowed at most places and that's needed for imported documents. When writing to ODFF we'd need to handle that in formula/source/core/api/token.cxx methods MissingConvention::isRewriteNeeded() and FormulaMissingContext::AddMissing() I think, that the interpreter should not allow invalid (in respect to ODF) formulas, but complain about wrong syntax. Instead the import filter should add the missing parameter. The third parameter has an ODF default value true and Excel calculates with this missing parameter as if it is true. Therefore the Excel import filter should add a true. Issue 106118 is about the fact, that our interpreter does not default to true but to false. From a technical view it is no problem to set it to true in the LINEST method, but I think it would be the wrong way. For ODFF there may be a general approach necessary that normally rewrites a missing parameter and allows missing parameters only for specific functions and parameters. Best approach probably would be to have a table of OpCodes and parameters. This should not be your concern now, we'll have to do that later though.

Hi Eike, same additional information: I use the odffmap entry { IMCOT, IMCOT, false, com.sun.star.sheet.addin.Analysis.getImcot, COM.SUN.STAR.SHEET.ADDIN.ANALYSIS.GETIMCOT } (1) Save document in setting ODF 1.2. (2) Open it in OOo2.4.3 and save there. That results in document version ODF1.1 and file attribute oooc=IMCOT. (3) Open in my Build results in shown value #NAME? and cell content =imcot. (4) Now save as in setting ODF 1.2 and reload. The function IMCOT is detected correctly.

Do I understand you right, that I should try to add the prefix in function GetExcelName in /sc/.../addincol.cxx? Yes, that was the idea, sort of. Sorry, I was not clear enough about this. In my eyes, the solution is to not touch the _Odf table, but to add the functions into the resource files in scaddins that are used for the XCompatibilityNames implementation. This would be in scaddins/source/analysis/analysis_deffuncnames.src. These strings are returned by the GetExcelName() functions of the addin collection. I have now used in analysis_deffuncnames.src an entry: StringArray ANALYSIS_DEFFUNCNAME_Imcot { ItemList = { _xlfnodf.IMCOT; ; _xlfnodf.IMCOT; ; }; }; And for comparison an entry StringArray ANALYSIS_DEFFUNCNAME_Imcsc { ItemList = { IMCSC; ; IMCSC; ; }; }; This are the results, all in setting ODF 1.2 and always saving to xls format: As far as I can see in the binary of the file, the function name is stored as _xlfnodf.IMCOT and IMCSC respectively. The order of that function names is: addin functions, named references, core functions. (1) Opening and saving in Excel, then reopening in my build: All functions are recognized correctly. It makes no difference using prefix _xlfnodf. or not. (2) Opening and saving in OOo2.4.3, then reopening in my build: In OOo2.4.3 the unknown core functions are marked as #MACRO?, the unknown addin functions as #ADDIN? Reopening in my build the core functions are recognized, the addin functions are not recognizes and marked as #MACRO? Here too, it makes no difference using prefix _xlfnodf. or not. (3) Opening and saving in Gnumeric, then reopening in my build: All functions with prefix _xlfnodf are not recognized, the addin functions without prefix are recognized. Reopening in my build all core functions are recognized, the addin functions without prefix are recognized, the addin functions with prefix are not recognized.

Those functions have no op-code. Need I to add them to saFuncTable_Odf? If yes, how can I do it? Yes, the filters in sc are used for import/export of the XLS format. On export, the current behaviour is: If the function is an add-in function, the XCompatibilityNames interface is used to retrieve its name used in the XLS file format (see in file sc/source/filter/excel/xeformula.cxx, in function XclExpFmlaCompImpl::AppendAddInCallToken(), call to GetExcelName()). So I would suggest that this interface returns the _xlfnodf.XYZ function names, to not get any name clashes with existing functions in Excel. The import filter will try to convert these function names back to add-in functions, again with the mentioned interface. But I do not know if this will work out of the box. In file sc/source/filter/excel/xiroot.cxx, there is a function XclImpRoot::GetScAddInName() that calls GetCalcName() if you want to debug it. I have added the imaginary functions to saFuncTable_Odf with opcode ocNoName now. The prefix _xlfnodf. is not set. It does not work out of the box. You do not notice the missing prefix in the test results, when testing the round trip mybuild - Excel - mybuild. There the cell entries are OK. But you see it in the round trip in xls format mybuild - OOo243 - mybuild, which results in #MACRO?, and if you look into the xls file with an editor. if you want to debug it There is no hurry to implement the new functions.

In other places with sin() the version ::rt::math::sin() is used to get a guard for overflow. That would result in constraint x=9,22337203685478E+018, which is much larger. See comment in sal/inc/rtl/math.hxx for isValidArcArg(). We rely on the trigonometric functions being implemented such that radians up to 2^64 (=1.844e19) are supported. Re-thinking that, also per the comments Leonarda gave, we should lower the limit to a value representable in a double's (binary64) mantissa of 53 bits. For consistency with the approx functions I suggest a constraint x=2^48 I have scanned that area a little bit, using some integral numbers. The accuracy is about 7-8 digits for x near to 2^48. For larger values, the accuracy decreases dramatically to 0-1 digit. The accuracy for integral numbers is 14-15 digits till 2^27. But for non-integral numbers the situation is not so good. The function sin() reacts very sensitive on rounding errors. Although the arguments only differ in that digit, which is not displayed, the result might be very different. This error is greater for large values and values near multiples of PI. Some examples: near 2^48, near multiple of PI sin(281474976710656 + 0.1) = 2.52110962285532E-001 sin(281474976710656 + 0.4) = 4.83685841828820E-001 near 2^26 sin(109951164.00440 + 0,01) = 9.9998707539E-001 sin(109951164.00440 + 0,04) = 9.9998550774E-001 near 2^36 sin(109951164005.920 + 0.0001) = 9,9640813644E-001 sin(109951164005.920 + 0.0004) = 9.9844512272E-001 near 2^45 sin(49951164005923.8 + 0.01) = -9.94815019880560E-001 sin(49951164005923.8 + 0.04) = -9.97506946246269E-001 About the IEEE 754 specification mentioned there: Unfortunately I can't find that 2^64 requirement, apparently the standard itself does not say so, just checked. Maybe it did in an older public draft, as a recommendation. Apparently C math libraries implement it such. If there is no special reason, should I replace it, while I work on the missing complex trigonometric functions? Note that this SinOverflow() of the Analysis Add-In is used with IMSIN() and IMCOS() only. However, in Excel also the SIN(), COS() and TAN() functions are affected by the x134217728 constraint, which we handle using the ::rtl::math approach. I think we can safely replace SinOverflow() with ::rtl::math::isValidArcArg() if we chose a better limit for that. I have written all imaginary functions now in a way that ::rtl::math::isValidArcArg() is used. Doing that the imaginary functions will give the same result as the normal real functions, when called with a real argument. Concerning the limit in ::rtl::math::isValidArcArg() I'm not sure, what is the right way. Gnumeric does not limit the argument of sine and results wrong values. I too tend to use 2^48 as limit. Beyond that limit the result are unusable. But in addition the descriptions in the Wiki should mention, that the accuracy will only be good (= 9 to 15 digits) if the argument is smaller than 2^27. kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

The 2^27 limit also prevents inaccurate results, like Leonard described. Both can be justified. The pragmatic solution, to avoid breaking any existing usage, might be to keep the separate limit for the scaddins complex number functions, at least for now. to avoid breaking any existing usage is a good argument to not change anything in IMSIN or IMCOS. But what limit shall I use in the other complex trigonometric functions? (IMTAN, IMCOT, IMCSC, IMSEC, IMCOSH, IMSINH, IMCSCH, IMSECH). I personally think, that huge arguments are not needed.

### Re: [sc-dev] constraint of x in sin(x) in scaddins

Hi Leonard, it seems, that I have not been clear enough. sin() is a function in the math library of C and C++ compilers and is nowadays accurate in double precision up to x2^64. To prevent larger arguments the special implementation ::rtl::math::sin() is used in OOo. But inside the implementation of IMSIN() in the module scaddins a constraint x134217728 is used. I only want to know, why this has been introduced. I doubt, that this restriction is still necessary. I know, that a lot of binary values give different results for sin(), although they are shown with the same decimal values in 15 digit precision (the highest precision Calc UI has). But that is not central point of my question. kind regards Regina Leonard Mada schrieb: Dear Regina, I believe that sin() should have as constraint the largest float (or integer) that fulfills the following condition: sin(max) = correct result + epsilon sin(max + lambda) = correct result + epsilon , where lambda is a float in the interval (0, pi/2). Let me explain this a little bit. sin: [any float] - [-1, 1] sin(pi/2) = 1 sin(pi/2 + pi/2) = 0 So basically, if we want to compute sin() at some precision, we have to guarantee that the number we compute the sinus of, can be accurately represented. Else, we risk a total fiasco, because sin(a_very_big_number) may correspond to any value in [-1, +1], as the last digits in a_very_big_number are not accurate. So, big_number +/- pi/2 may be represented as big_number, although the sinus would have different signs for those theoretically different numbers. Therefore, the number which still makes sense to compute the sinus off, should fulfill the requirements set above. We still need to determine what values lambda and epsilon take, but I hope that the general idea is clear. Basically, this also depends on the implementation of general numbers in the particular software (Calc in this example). Some may store 16 decimal digits, so 1.xxx * 10^16 is still ok to compute the sin() (or marginally so), some may store 32 digits, so 1.xxx * 10^32 would be fine in that case. I believe that lambda should be not bigger than pi/4, while epsilon is flexible in this case (e.g. 10^-6 is probably sufficient).

For ISREF the help say, Tests if the argument is a reference. Returns TRUE if the argument is a reference, returns FALSE otherwise. Taking that, D1:D3!C2:E2 is a 'reference'. I know that INDIRECT cannot work with this sort of 'reference' up to know. My question is, whether this is because of definition in ODF or not. If the definition allows it, then we can enhance INDIRECT (if we want). And what about all type of names? INDIRECT(name) will fail. I know, that is mentioned in the help. But must it fail?

Why Excel even allows such crap is beyond my scope.. I guess, it is a bug in Excel. [..] I first thought I could withdraw the new proposal I made for ODFF, Please do not withdraw it. If CEILING will be defined with three parameters, it is meaningful to allow CEILING(x;;y). It makes it easy to drag-copy in the case the user wants a rounding to integer. Otherwise he needs something like CEILING(x;if(x=0;1;-1);y), because the first and second parameter must have the same sign. Or the spec is changed in a way, that the second parameter is always not negative and the sign is set automatically according to the first parameter. but there may be documents in the wild that have the missing parameter written. These currently calculate 0 for any CEILING(x;;y), but will have to calculate according to the spec then, which is to use -1 or +1 for the missing parameter. It was an error in OOo to allow the missing parameter and interpret it as 0 in first place, just to be Excel compatible.. Yes, I too think it as a fault in OOo and I see additional trouble with handling of ods-documents saved with OOo3.0 to OOo3.2. Is there a way to distinguish, whether a document was saved in a version with the 'wrong' handling? I mean for example, if the method with missing = +-1 would be used in OOo3.3, can a OOo3.3 detect, that a document was saved in OOo3.2, which uses the old method with missing = 0? == Export == When the formula in OOo is =CEILING(3.4;;Mode) it is exported to =CEILING(3.4;) which results in 0 in Excel. But in OOo the formula results in 4. Currently it does not. It should.. but it does this Excel compatibility stuff. Yes. I described the problems we get, when we implement CEILING according to spec. If the formula is exported as =CEILING(3.4;1) it would give the correct result in EXCEL. But for =CEILING(-3.4;;0) in OOo, which results in -3, Also here, it should, but currently doesn't.. the current export is =CEILING(-3.4;) which result in 0 in Excel which is wrong, but the export to =CEILING(-3.4;1) gives an invalid formula and =CEILING(-3.4;-1) would result in -4 in Excel, which is wrong too. Basically we can't export any function with Mode=0 (or omitted) to Excel where FLOOR(-x) or CEILING(-x) are rounded mathematically, because Excel has them wrong. IMHO, the best would be to write an NA() as second parameter in these cases, so the result in Excel will be an error instead of a different value. Concerning import/export with Excel, another -radical, but clean- solution might be to implement CEILING_ADD, and export the regular CEILING function to an error value in all cases. It would support an Excel - OOo - Excel work flow, especially if the user sets xls as default format. For OOo - Excel the user would be responsible to use Excel compatible functions. The formulas are better readable than using an if construct (I read your description below already). Especially, when a user sets xls as default format, he might wonder, that his expression changed to an if-construct, when he reopens his document. But unfortunately this does not solve the change of meaning in ods-documents. When the formula in OOo is =CEILING(3.4) it is calculated as CEILING(3.4;1;0)=4. An export as =CEILING(3.4;1) would give correct values in Excel. But =CEILING(-3.4) is calculated as CEILING(-3.4;-1;0)=-3 and CEILING(-3.4;1) is invalid again and CEILING(-3.4;-1) result in -4 in Excel, which is wrong. I see no way to make a general export, that gives the same value in Excel as in OOo by simply setting or dropping parameters. So what to do in export? Hmm, I see. So the second parameter has to be set according to the current value of the first. No idea how to fix this easily... No easy fix. We might track the calculation in the interpreter and store the replacement parameter at the ocCeil/ocFloor tokens if needed, but that still wouldn't resolve

### Re: [sc-dev] Missing second parameter in CEILING

Hi Daniel, I do not answer directly, because it seems that I described my concern not good enough. Next try: == Import == Importing an Excel-file with =CEILING(-3.4;) for example gives the cellcontent =CEILING(-3.4;;1), because in the current import filter the third parameter 1 is added to get Excels rounding away from zero behavior.

Here too the result in Excel is 0, and an import as =CEILING(0;value;1) would give the same result as in Excel. This is true for the Excel formats xls, xlsx and xlsb. The import filter for xml does not alter the Excel formulas and so the formulas in the cells are invalid according to ODF1.2. But it could be solved the same way with =CEILING(0;value;1) and =CEILING(value;0;1) respectively. Change the import filter? == Export == When the formula in OOo is =CEILING(3.4;;Mode) it is exported to =CEILING(3.4;) which results in 0 in Excel. But in OOo the formula results in 4.

### [sc-dev] Missing second parameter in CEILING

Hi, I'am currently looking at issue 102957 ODFF: FLOOR and CEILING should work with a single argument. Now OOo allows CEILING(N;Significance;Mode) and CEILING(N;Significance). I have made some changes to allow CEILING(N) too. Thereby I noticed the following problem: OOo allows CEILING(N;;Mode) where the second parameter is missing. It does this already in version OOo2.4.2 But that is not allowed in spec (chapter 6.16.1). Unfortunately I can not do anything in ScCeil, because in this case nParamCount is already 3 and it seems that the missing parameter is set to 0. Besides the fact, that a missing second parameter is not allowed, the default for the second parameter has to be +1 or -1 depending on the sign of N. I would expect, that the case CEILING(N;;Mode) raises a Variable missing error. But I don't now, where this should happen. Could you please point me to that place? kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

Thereby I noticed the following problem: OOo allows CEILING(N;;Mode) where the second parameter is missing. It does this already in version OOo2.4.2 Presumably for Excel interoperability because there the functions have only 2 parameters, but Excel allows CEILING(value,) and during import we have to add the 3rd parameter to indicate the mode. Problems see below. But that is not allowed in spec (chapter 6.16.1). We'll have to change the spec for interoperability, I created issue http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2006 Unfortunately I can not do anything in ScCeil, because in this case nParamCount is already 3 and it seems that the missing parameter is set to 0. Besides the fact, that a missing second parameter is not allowed, the default for the second parameter has to be +1 or -1 depending on the sign of N. After the 3rd argument was popped from the stack you can check with IsMissing() whether the 2nd argument is of type svMissing, then pop the value with GetDouble() as usual, and after having obtained the 1st argument change the value of the 2nd argument accordingly to +1 or -1 if it was missing. Ah, IsMissing() is new to me. I can now set the missing second parameter to +1 or -1 depending on N. That works at least for CEILING on which I'm currently working. But Excel Import and Export is confusing. (1) Import: In cases CEILING(value;) and CEILING(;value) the result in Excel2007 is always 0. On import of CEILING(value;) OOo does this: .xlsturn to CEILING(value;;1) and show cell content 0. .xlsx turn to CEILING(value;;1) too, but show cell content Err:511 .xmlturn to CEILING(value;) and show cell content Err:511 On import of CEILING(;value) OOo does this: .xlsturn to CEILING(;value;1) and show cell content 0. .xlsx turn to CEILING(;value;1) too, but show cell content Err:511 .xmlturn to CEILING(;value) and show cell content Err:511 The errors are shown left as if they are text. The cell content is only recalculated, if you edit the cell, but that is another issue. Because Excel returns 0 in this cases, I think an import to CEILING(value;0) and CEILING(0;value) would be a better solution. Although I not yet know how to do it. (2) Export: Currently OOo drops the third parameter. So the value differs from Excel in the cases of (N0 and Mode=0). When now the second parameter it optional too, how should it be exported? Using +1 gives the same result as in OOo for all cases but (N0 and Mode=0). So I would prefer that. Gnumeric goes a total different way. It generates a new expression to simulate the behavior with it's two parameter version of CEILING. You can see it, when you open an ods-file in Gnumeric. For example CEILING(A2;B2;C2) becomes =if(0=C2;if(A20;floor(A2;B2);ceiling(A2;B2));ceiling(A2;B2)) What is the desired behavior on import from Excel and export to Excel? kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

### [sc-dev] OOo2.4.2 takes of:=FDIST(a,b,c) as if it is ooc:=FDIST(a,b,c)

Hello all, during my implementation of FDISTL I saw the following problems. (1) I generate a file with a formula =FDISTL(a,b,c) and store it in version ODF1.2. Unzipping the file I find of:=FDIST(a,b,c), which is correct. Now I open the file in OOo2.4.2. I get the version warning to upgrade. (BTW, you get the warning only for first opening.) Then it opens and the cell with of:=FDIST(a,b,c) is calculated with cell content =FDIST(a,b,c) instead of showing a #NAME? error. This must not happen, because =FDIST in OOo2.4.2 means the right tail, which is internally of:=LEGACY.FDIST. The user does not know, that the result is wrong. Similar for the four parameter form. of:=FDIST(a,b,c,d) results in cell content =FDIST(a,b,c,d). The user gets an Err:504 here, because of the forth parameter. If you now save the file in OOo2.4.2 and reopen it in OOo3.2, then the original =fdistl() cell contents are not restored. We have data loss. Is there any place in source of OOo3.2 where I can avoid that error? Or can it only be solved in OOo2.4.x? (2) Another problem is the following scenario. Save in OOo3.2 with version ODF1.0. Open in OOo3.1.1. In cells with content =FDISTL() you get correctly content =fdistl() and #NAME? error, because this function is unknown to OOo3.1.1. Now save the file in OOo3.1.1 with version ODF1.2. and open it in OOo3.2. The cell content is shown as =fdistl(), but the now known function is not identified and the cells show a #NAME? error. Unzipping the file you see a of:=fdistl(), which small instead of capital letters. Even a hard recalculate does not help.

Hi Eike, Eike Rathke schrieb: Hi Regina, On Sunday, 2009-06-28 20:20:17 +0200, Regina Henschel wrote: Searching around I come across an iterative solution from Peter Deuflhard [1] (German). My tests as Basic macro results in an accuracy of at least 12 digits. But it needs approximately order+x*1.1+30 iterations. [1] http://www.mathematik.uni-dortmund.de/ieem/BzMU/BzMU2007/Deuflhard.pdf So the question is, how much iterations are acceptable? Depends of course on the cost per iteration. Hard to say. How much time is a user willing to wait for an accurate result? Which still doesn't say anything about a series of values to be calculated. But, since a non-accurate solution wouldn't help much, I guess having to wait a little isn't too much.. so I just throw a number and say 1. Does that help anything? With 1 iterations you get convergence for x6000 - might be x1 - depending on order N. When I calculate the asymptotic formula with MuPad in high precision, then I get only 2 to 3 (estimated in the mean) accurate digits even for x200*N^2. From point of accuracy this asymptotic formula is unusable. For example BESSELJ(3000;200) results in -7,79235815417491E-003 with the current implementation with asymptotic formula, but the true value is -1.186524260848996e-2. Gnumeric results -1.186524260848841E-002, my Basic version of Deuflhard's algorithm results -1,18652426084901E-002. But calculating this needs 3147 iterations. For order 200 you would need x52 to result in at least 1 digit accuracy with the asymptotic formula. Second problem: The current implementation restricts the order to integer values. In mathematic the order need not to be integer. ODF1.2 also allows non-integer order. Are there plans to implement a solution in OOo with non-integer orders? I personally have no idea how to do it. No plans. Is there any practical benefit in calculating non-integer orders? I don't know. The Bessel-functions are used in technical tasks. I also don't know, which ranges are really necessary for x and for order N. Does any spreadsheet application do it? Excel rounds down to integer. The comment in ODF spec 16.15.11 says that Gnumeric allow fractional N, but my Gnumeric 1.6.3 rounds down too. In the comment Kspread is said to allow fractional N, but I haven't got that program. So the question is, shall I implement Deuflhard's algorithm nevertheless? Perhaps warn the user in the help, that large input values results in long lasting calculations? What is large and what is long lasting? I would have to implement it in C++ to see how long it really lasts. The Basic macro lasts several seconds for x1. The effort is linear in x. Or return an error, if neither asymptotic formula results at least 2 digits (How tell the user, that the result is not accurate?) A few functions set errNoConvergence if a function can't determine a result. That would be better than returning a result, which has no correct digit, as the current solution does. nor Deuflhard's algorithm calculates in reasonable time (where to cut?)? reasonable time depends on user perspective and intention. I don't think there is a general reasonable timeout. So I would prefer to implement an iterative solution and drop the inaccurate asymptotic part. The algorithm should converge, but I hesitate to use a while-loop without any cut. I need to test, for which x I can get a result in 1 second. Of cause the help should warn the user about high x-values. The asymptotic formula can be mentioned in the help in Wiki. It is not long and the user can write it directly as spreadsheet formula, if he needs huge x-values. That way he is aware of the accuracy problem. Btw, newer g++ compilers (= 4.3) have some bessel functions built-in, as part of the TR1 extensions, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B_Technical_Report_1, it appears that MSVC does not have them though. The MSVC Express edition has not any of that functions. Also the Boost library provides bessel functions, I don't know off-hand which library version introduced them and if it is in the one OOo uses. Maybe time to finally upgrade ;-) You are right to remember me to Boost, I have overlooked it. I had a look at Boost now. The Bessel functions (and a lot of others) are included in library Math Toolkit since version 1.35.0. I see version 1.34.0 in OOo. There is a description in http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_35_0/libs/math/doc/sf_and_dist/html/math_toolkit/special/bessel/bessel.html. Having an actual version of the Boost library would solve a lot of other accuracy problems too. I would prefer upgrading Boost library. When can the upgrade be done? Using it then would mean to rewrite most of interpr3, interpr6 and analysis part of scaddin, which might take a while. I guess rewrite can be done step by step. In the long run we need no longer to struggle with accuracy of special functions

### [sc-dev] How should MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS calculate?

Hi all, thinking about issue 102980 and 102981 I found, that it is not clear to me, how to calculate MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS at all. Take a spreadsheet and enter the following numbers and formulas into column A, beginning in cell A1 with number 2. 2 3 =A1+A2 30 =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A2;A4) 700 =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A5;A2;A6) What do you expect in cell A7? OOo3 calculates the value 702. In ODF1.2 draft spec I read, MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS executes the formula expression pointed to by FormulaCell and _all_ formula expressions it depends on while replacing _all_ references to RowCell with references to RowReplacement respectively all references to ColumnCell with references to ColumnReplacement. I think that the terms execute formula expression and while replacing is not exact enough. (1) I interpret it in the way, that I first replace all references, generating intermediate, temp sheets, and then evaluate that sheet. I get the following: For =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A5;A2;A6) we have to replace in the content of A5 all references to A2 with A6. So content of A5 becomes =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4). But A3 is not a finite number but a formula which depends on A1 and A2. Therefore in A3 the reference A2 is also replaced with A6 and the content of A3 becomes =A1+A6. Our new sheet content with replaced references is now: 2 3 =A1+A6 30 =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4) 700 result of A5 With this sheet we have to take the value of A5 as result for A7. Calculating the value of A5 we have to execute a MULTIPLE.OPERATION. It says that the reference A6 in the formula in A3 is to be replaced with the reference A4. We get the next temp speat content: 2 3 =A1+A4 30 result of A3 700 result of A5 with the inner-outer-order of calculating A3 then A5 then A7. So the shown values are 2 3 32 //result of =A1+A4 30 32 //result of A3 700 32 //result of A5 (2) I replace the reference in the formula expression referenced by FormulaCell and then immediately execute that expression. For =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A5;A2;A6) we have to replace in the content of A5 all reference to A2 with A6. So content of A5 becomes =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4). This results in the sheet 2 3 =A1+A2 30 =MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS(A3;A6;A4) 700 result of A5 Calculating the result of A5 we have to replace all references A6 in cell content A3 with A4. This results in the sheet 2 3 =A1+A2 // There is no A6 reference 30 result of A3 700 result of A5 We calculate the results in inner-outer-order first A3 then A5 then A7, and get the sheet 2 3 5 //result of A1+A2 30 5 //result of A3 700 5 //result of A5 Mmh, neither (1) nor (2) results in 702. kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

Non-empty overlapped cells are quite rare, but if they occur, we shouldn't ignore them. But perhaps we should extend Regina's suggestion to all empty cells, even if not overlapped (hidden) by merged cells, so any sequence of 10,empty,20,empty would be continued with 30,empty,40,empty. That is a great idea and will be a good extension. User would still get the current behavior, if he only marks the sequence '20 empty' and he gets the extended behavior, when he marks a longer sequence.

### [sc-dev] Implementation details of POISSON

Hi all, I have a look at the function POISSON for issue http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=69069 The bug is easy to fix, I have tested my solution already and it work so far, but I have some questions. (1) In draft spec of ODF the function POISSON has a constraint lambda 0. But in the code there is the part if (lambda == 0.0) PushInt(0); Shall I drop that case? If not, PushInt(0) looks strangely. Shouldn't it be PushDouble as for other arguments too? (2) The code has two for-loops. One seems to be very old (A), one newer (B). What is the right way for such loops? What type should the index have, and if necessary, how has the cast to be done? Is there any advantage of an integer type over double? (A) ULONG nEnd = (ULONG) x; for (ULONG i = 1; i = nEnd; i++) { fFak *= (double)i; sum += pow( lambda, (double)i ) / fFak; } (B) for ( double f = 0.0; f x; ++f ) fPoissonVar *= lambda / ( f + 1.0 ); kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

### [sc-dev] Implementation details for FDIST

Hi, besides the UI-name problem I come across two other questions. (1) If the numerator degrees of freedom (r1) is 1, then the density function has a pole at x=0. The draft spec does not define the return value in that case. For x0 it defines that the return value is 0. For x=0 it defines it with a term which has a subterm x^(r1/2-1). And x^(-1/2) is not defined for x=0. I can set the result to 0 or set illegal argument or perhaps set infinity. Please decide. (2) The algorithm is not stable for large values of the degrees of freedom. There are some critical parts in the term, for example BETA(r1/2;r2/2) in the denominator which is near 0 then, and x^(r1/2-1) which will overflow or underflow. I can of cause alter the way the term is calculated, but I found, that there are always critical subterms. The problem is, that the calculating as a whole does not abort with an error, but returns some values which are wrong. You see that they are wrong, if you calculate a series of values, but you do not notice it, when you calculate a single value. I notice such problems, when I create large tables of example values. Therefore I would like to restrict the degrees of freedom to be lower than 1.0E15, where I do not saw any problems. The current implementation (=cumulative right tail) has a restriction of 1.0E10. Excel and Gnumeric have restriction to about 1.0E10 too. Are larger values really needed in real live? Please decide about a restriction. kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

The current FDIST function calculates the _right_ tail cumulative distribution function of the F-distribution. The new function will calculate the _left_ tail cumulative distribution function and the density function in addition and will have an optional parameter to distinguish between cumulative and density. The old function is called LEGACY.FDIST and the new one is called FDIST internally. I'm going to implement the new function and need an UI-name for the new function. I think, it would be very confusing to use the internal names in the UI too, because than we would have different meanings of FDIST in OOo3.1 and OOo3.2. I suggest to use FDISTLEFT. But perhaps there is a spreadsheet application that has got this left tailed version already? EXCEL 2007 and Gnumeric 1.6.3 do not know this function. Any suggestions? kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

### [sc-dev] signaling domain error in acosh

Hi all, I'm working to increase accuracy of ScArcCosHyp(). The function acosh is part of C99 but not provided by MSVC. Therefore I have written the ersatz in sal\rtl\source\math.cxx double SAL_CALL rtl_math_acosh( double fX ) SAL_THROW_EXTERN_C() { double fZ = fX - 1.0; if ( fX == 1.0) return 0.0; else if (fX 1.1) return rtl_math_log1p(fZ+sqrt(fZ*fZ+2.0*fZ)); else if ( fX 1.25e7) return log(fX+sqrt(fX*fX-1.0)); else return log(2.0*fX); } The function acosh is not defined for x1. The function ScArcCosHyp() pushes an IllegalArgument and do not call acosh in that cases. Do I need any kind of error handling in my rtl_math_acosh? The function acosh might be called from somewhere else, not only from ScArcCosHyp. kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: dev-unsubscr...@sc.openoffice.org For additional commands, e-mail: dev-h...@sc.openoffice.org

The GNU patch utility neatly skipped over that, mumbling something like extraneous CRs ignored or some such, but inferior tools may not, or on Windows be lead again to convert all line ends to CrLf, I don't know. Is there an option in TortoiseSVN to tell it to always produce sane LF line feeds only? I have looked around in the settings, but do not see such an option. It seems to be possible to set a property to each single file, so that the line end it forced to LF when committing the file. It does not cover the use case of generating a patch for a folder. That setting is not possible for a folder. But I'm not familiar with TortoiseSVN, so I don't know whether such setting is possible somewhere. I can try to convert the line ends with an editor.

### Re: [sc-dev] How to export expanded LOGNORMDIST to Excel

Hi Eike, hi Daniel, I delete the old mail-texts, because it becomes to long and confusing. There are still problems. First the Excel part: Exporting to xls is OK now. I get #NV for four parameters and for parameter count 3 the missing parameters are added. But export to Microsoft Excel 2003 XML (.xml) is problematic. If OOo is set to save in odf1.2, the file opens with errors in Excel. All formulae are stripped. The error log says for example GRUND: Ungültiger Wert WERT: of:=LOGNORMDIST(0.6;[.B12];[.B11]) I think, there should not be this kind of WERT, because that form was unkown 2003. If OOo is set to save in odf1.1, the cases with parameter count = 3 are opened with formulas, only the cases with parameter count=4 give an error and the formulas are stripped. The error log says for example GRUND: Ungültiger Wert WERT: =LOGNORMDIST(0.6,R[-1]C,R[-2]C,R[-3]C) I think that is the correct behaviour. Now the OOo-part: I have added in FormulaMissingContext::AddMoreArgs() the lines code case ocLogNormDist: if (mnCurArg == 0) { pNewArr-AddOpCode (ocSep ); pNewArr-AddDouble( 0.0 ); // 2nd, mean = 0.0 } if (mnCurArg == 1) { pNewArr-AddOpCode (ocSep ); pNewArr-AddDouble( 1.0 ); // 3rd, standard deviatioen = 1.0 } break; /code If OOo is set to save to odf1.2, then I get the transformation =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;3) -- =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;3;1) That is undesirable. It is contrary to the new feature, that the parameter is optional. And I get the transformation =LOGNORMDIST(0,6) -- =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;0) It shouldn't be transformed at all (see above). But when it is transformed, why is the third parameter missing? It is not missing, when using odf1.1, see below. If OOo is set to save to odf1.1, then I get the transformations =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;3) -- =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;3;1) =LOGNORMDIST(0,6) -- =LOGNORMDIST(0,6;0;1) I think, those transformations are OK. It is more complicate than I thought. I hope you are not annoyed, that I need to ask so much.

### Re: [sc-dev] How to export expanded LOGNORMDIST to Excel

Hi Daniel, Daniel Rentz schrieb: Regina Henschel schrieb: Hi, I'm expanding LOGNORMDIST to the form it has in ODF spec.

Excel has 3 Parameters, no one optional. For expanding NORMDIST I had only to set the last parameter to optional. I found in xeformula.cxx how to add the last parameter, if missing. I have used case ocNormDist: if( nParamCount == 3 ) { // NORMDIST function needs 4 parameters in Excel PrepareParam( rFuncData ); AppendBoolToken( true ); FinishParam( rFuncData ); } break; and that seems to work. But for LOGNORMDIST there are different cases, for example LOGNORMDIST(x;m;s;TRUE()) must become LOGNORMDIST(x;m;s). A parameter has to be removed. LOGNORMDIST(x;m;s;FALSE()) does not exist in Excel. LOGNORMDIST(x;m;s) Nothing to do, same as in Excel. LOGNORMDIST(x;m) must become LOGNORMDIST(x;m;1). LOGNORMDIST(x) must become LOGNORMDIST(x;0;1). To increase the number of parameters, you can do something similar in XclExpFmlaCompImpl::AppendTrailingParam (untested code!): case ocLogNormDist: // LOGNORMDIST function needs 3 parameters in Excel switch( nParamCount ) { case 1: PrepareParam( rFuncData ); AppendIntToken( 0 ); FinishParam( rFuncData ); // do not break, add next default parameter case 2: PrepareParam( rFuncData ); AppendIntToken( 1 ); FinishParam( rFuncData ); break; } break; That works. When exporting to xls, I get the correct function structure, if there are one, two or three parameters in OOo. If there are four parameters in OOo, I get a =#NV entry in German Excel 2007. I think, the error message is correct, because the user has to know, that there has been something, which is unknown to Excel. It is a concession that the missing parameters are added, although the user who will export to Excel-format should know, that Excel expects three parameters. Shouldn't we do the same for saving in old OOo formats, especially, when OOo3.0 is set in general to use ODF1.0-format? If you agree, that in cases saving to old OOo-formats the missing second and third parameters should be added, where is the place to do it? To delete the 4th parameter, you can change the function info of this function. Go to xlformula.cxx and look for ocLogNormDist, change the line from { ocLogNormDist,290,3, 3, V, { V }, 0, 0 }, to { ocLogNormDist,290,3, 3, V, { V, V, V, C, I }, 0, 0 }, The C means that the 4th parameter is Calc-only and will be stripped on export. The trailing I is needed for some internal resons. I have done first the changes in formulabase.cxx. That gives no error, but I see no effect, so I cannot say if it really works. Then I changed xlformula.cxx. That works, now the entry in the xls-file has three parameters in all cases. I have rethought the problem. It seems no good idea to strip the fourth parameter. If it is stripped, there are no errors in Excel, but the cells might have different values than OOo, because in OOo you calculate the density function and in Excel the cumulative function is calculated. The user cannot notice, that the values are wrong, because there are no warnings. That is not good and we should not do it. There is no way to determine whether the forth parameter is true or false, because it might be no constant but a reference. The same problem is, when saving to old OOo-formats. Using four parameters should give an error, when opening in old versions.

### [sc-dev] Decision needed for FISHERINV and ATANH

Hi, I have examined FISHER and FISHERINV and thereby struggle about some problems. FISHERINV(x) is not accurate for x very near to zero. For example FISHERINV(1E-15)=1.1387379200E-015, but should result in 1E-15. That can be easily fixed by calling tanh() instead of the current (exp(2x)-1)/(exp(2x)+1). FISHER has the same problem for x near zero. For example FISHER(0.1)=1.002953E-005, but should return 1.00E-005. The fix is easy but needs some decisions. Mathematically FISHER(x)=atanh(x). But the OOo function ATANH() uses the same insufficient algorithm as FISHER. Therefore ATANH() has to be changed too. The best solution, using a build-in function, is not available: atanh() is a C99 function and therefore not available in MSVC compiler. The code itself is rather simple, there are two possible methods: (1) atanh(x)=0.5*log1p(2*x/(1-x)) (2) Use the first five summands of the power series for |x|0.01, which would be atanh(x)=x(1+x²*(1/3+x²*(1/5+x²*(1/7+x²*1/9 and use atanh(x)=0.5*ln((1+x)/(1-x)) in the other cases.

### [sc-dev] Cannot use LEGACY.xxx style of functions in OOo3

Hi, reading the ODFF draft spec I have assumed, that it is possible to access the functions which have LEGACY.xxx names in exact this way. But it doesn't work. This might not be a problem with CHIDIST, because it is clear, that this is the old, right tailed form, because CHISQDIST is the new left tailed form. But for FDIST and FINV there are no new names planed. So what will happen, if you open an old document? You cannot show the name FDIST, because it will have a different meaning. I would expect, that when opened, it is changed to LEGACY.FINV. But that can I not use in OOo3. How will it be possible to use both meanings parallel? It seems that there is something missing/wrong?

Shouldn't the argument type be integer instead? It seems to be an open ToDo, see remark at the end of part 6.2.5. Should I implement it: (1) break with an illegal argument error, if the value is not an integer or (2) round the value to an integer. The current implementation of the complement function CHIDIST rounds the incoming value, but the spec has the same constraint for LEGACY.CHIDIST. I would prefer version (2) to make it consistent with existing CHIDIST. And changing CHIDIST too, I consider to dangerous, because existing documents might no longer work. Yes, for the implementation, let's stay consistent with the other functions, that is, truncate (not round) the value. Current implementation of CHIDIST has ::rtl::math::approxFloor(GetDouble()); I'll copy it in that way in CHISQDIST in CHISQINV. The current implementations of CHIDIST and CHIINV have a constraint 'degrees of freedom 1.0E5'. The spec don't have such restriction nor mention that they might be necessary. The code has no comment, why this constraint has been introduced. Can you tell me? Huge values might overflow oder underflow somewhere, but is that reason enough to reject them from the beginning? The old implementation (before issue 90703) looks like it couldn't handle large values. If you're confident that the current implementation is better, I think that constraint can be removed. When degrees of freedom is large and x-values is a little bit smaller than degrees of freedom, you get a no convergence error. When x-value is a little bit greater you get a value, but that is less accurate than for small values of degrees of freedom (but more accurate than the old implementation for largest possible values). That would be something to be mentioned in the Wiki. If x-value is not so near to degrees of freedom, you will get 0 or 1, which are correct values in that cases. So I see now reason, not to remove the constraint. kind regards Regina - To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

### Re: [sc-dev] Which category for GAMMA and GAMMALN?

Hi Eike, thanks for your answer. Next step to finish :) kind regards Regina Eike Rathke schrieb: Hi Regina, replying after vacation gap..

(3) wouldn't be an option as long as we don't decide to reorganize the categorization, which David also mentioned. The current categorization lists functions for Excel compatibility, so people find the functions where they are used to. I think (1) would be best as all 4 GAMMA* functions would be grouped together, pointing the user to the existence of the new GAMMA function. Even if that would add to the improper categorization. Putting only GAMMA into Mathematical and leaving GAMMALN in Statistical could be somewhat confusing, I guess. Does the GAMMA function need a name in Resource RID_SC_FUNCTION_NAMES_ENGLISH? Yes, as those names are used to store in ODF 1.2 format. Also the XFunctionAccess API still uses them for compatibility. If yes, which name should be used? In general, where can I find which names are the correct ones for ODF v1? For new functions simply use the name as defined in ODFF. Older OOo versions not knowing a function wouldn't be able to compile and interpret the formula anyway.

### [sc-dev] How to handle ODFF constrain number must be integer?

Hello, and another questions, but I'm confident to finish this project next week ;) In the ODFF draft spec of CHISQDIST is a constraint for the parameter 'degrees of freedom' to be integer. Should I implement it: (1) break with an illegal argument error, if the value is not an integer or (2) round the value to an integer. The current implementation of the complement function CHIDIST rounds the incoming value, but the spec has the same constraint for LEGACY.CHIDIST. I would prefer version (2) to make it consistent with existing CHIDIST. And changing CHIDIST too, I consider to dangerous, because existing documents might no longer work.

### [sc-dev] Style of strings in sc/source/ui/src/scfuncs.src

Hello, I'll introduce new functions and I'm uncertain, how I should write the strings in the mentioned resource file. (1) Upper or lower case? If I give the type of the parameter, should I use lower or upper case, for example Number or number? Same if I give the name of the parameter, for example alpha or Alpha? (2) Excel shows a tooltip when you enter a function, for example (German) 'GAMMAVERT(x;Alpha;Beta;Kumuliert)'. Will there be a similar feature in OOo? If yes, will the tooltip be generated from the part 'Name of Parameter' of the resource file? (3) Should the type be combined with the name? For example Cumulative (logical) or only the type Logical or name Cumulative and the other information in the description? (4) Are there any restrictions in the length of the strings 'Description', 'Name of Parameter' and 'Description of Parameter'?

### [sc-dev] Which category for GAMMA and GAMMALN?

Hi, I want to bring the GAMMA function to UI, which works in general. But I have some questions for details. GAMMALN is currently in Category 'Statistical'. But in OpenFormula-v1.2-draft9.odt (which is the most current) it is in chapter '6.15 Mathematical Functions'. GAMMA is an expansion of factorials to real numbers. Shall I (1) Put GAMMA into 'Statistical' too or (2) Put GAMMA into 'Mathematical' and leave GAMMALN unchanged or (3) PUT GAMMA and GAMMALN both into 'Mathematical'?

### Re: [sc-dev] Some details of EUROCONVERT() specification.

Hi Lvyue, do you know the description from Microsoft? http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HP100624761033.aspx kind regards Regina lvyue schrieb: Hi, all I'm working on EUROCONVERT(), while implementing it, I found some details unmentioned in specifies. the format of the formula is EUROCONVERT( Number; TextFrom; TextTo; [FullPrecision [; TriangulationPrecision]] ). Comparing with Excel, I find following things: 1. if TextFrom equals TextTo, the result is completely the same as Number, no matter what the following two parms are; 2.if TextFrom=EUR and TextTo is other, TriangulationPrecision has no influence to the result; 3.if TextFrom=other and TextTo=EUR, the result seems to be rounded exactly to TriangulationPrecision; 4.TriangulationPrecision's rang is 3~32767, this is not an important thing, just mention to let know. somewhere I used seem to, because I didn't find any more detailed specifices of Excel's EUROCONVERT(), so I can only guess from the result it gives. and I want to implement our EUROCONVERT() the same way. if any one has questions and suggestions, please let me know. :) Thanks Lvyue - To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] - To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
