I think there is probably a problem with LO3.3 as the backed up version of my spreadsheet works perfectly well in both Oo3.2 and Excel. It is only when I try to open it in Lo3.3 that I have a problem.

Also when I try to reference a cell from a different file even though I have both files open and point from one to the other it still gives me the #REF error.

I have been using Libre Office 3.3 having up dated from Ooo 3.2. I now

sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, coming up with a #REF

worked perfectly in Open Office 3.2.

I uninstalled 3.2 before installing 3.3, but have had to go back to
Oo3.2 to get my spreadsheets working again.

I doubt that the #REF! error has anything to do with the software version. As far as I can see, this error works properly in LibreOffice. #REF! has to do with relative references and how these references resolve when you copy relative references. When they refer to some sheet/row/column out of scope you get either one of
=#REF!.A1 (no such sheet)
Sheet1.#REF!1 (no such row)
Sheet1.A#REF! (no such column)

Without any information at all it is impossible to help without posting a spreadsheet tutorial.
