Ah. I think I might have found a bug.

1. Put 'a' in A1 and 'z' in A2
2. Put 'a' in C1 and 1 in D1
3. Put 'z' in C1048576 and 26 in D1048576
4. Put formula in B1 =VLOOKUP(A1,INDIRECT("C1:D1048576"),2,0)
5. Copy formula into B2, which should give

Everything works fine, the first vlookup returns 1 and the second
returns 26... then...

6. Delete Row 3

The vlookup in B2 now returns blank! Can anyone else replicate this
behaviour and explain why?

7. Put 'z' in C2, then remove it

The vlookup in B2 works again!

I get the same result using OOo 3.2.1 on Vista Sp2. (Substituting 65536 as the last row)
Delete a row the result is blank. (MRI Inspection Tool shows a value of 0.0)
Enter 'z' in C2 and it returns 26 again.
Insert a row and it returns 26 again.
