Is this correct?


Isn´t this related to XOR formula?

Yes, it is.

ODF formula states XOR as: *Compute a logical XOR of all parameters.*
If its meant to be this way then the string should be:* *

*Returns TRUE if an odd number of arguments evaluates to TRUE and FALSE
an even number of arguments evaluates to TRUE.*

Well, that's the implication of the current description worded with
a longer sentence ;-)  If it doesn't return TRUE then it returns FALSE
for the negated condition mentioned for TRUE.

Note that also for AND and OR we don't describe the negated condition
that returns FALSE.

As these description are for the Function Wizard we need to be a bit
concise regarding string length and available space in the dialog and
try to use short descriptions. Some translations of long strings may get
even longer in their native language, so from the English string we
can't be sure that it really would fit.

Ok. Thanks for the explanation.
