Thank you for your kind interest and for your help: your questions
forced me to study my "problem" once again.
Obviously I am getting old -- I had done some bad thinking and caused
To other readers I want to recommend that tool "Multiple operations" in
I have a feeling that people does not know about it, as you said, it is
sort of hidden and forgotten. This is a shame because it really is very
handy for simulating or studying changes by using 1-2 variables.
E.g. estimating how the monthly payments of a loan changes with rate and
loan length (time) as variables.
It is easy and rather straight forward to use after a little training.

Hello, LibO folks,
In LibO-Calc there is a very interesting and useful tool "Data/Multiple
operations" -- at least as useful as "Pivot Table".
Yes, it is hidden and cannot be written with the function wizard. But
it is possible to write the function manually, you do not need Data >
When I recently updated an old calculation process created some 3-4
years ago in OpenO and recreated it in LibO-3.4.5, I noticed that one of
the tool's flexible features had vanished.
In the 'new' Calc the first cells of both "row input cell" E5 (of E5,
F5, G5,..etc.) and "column input cell" D6 (of D6, D7, D8, ..etc.)
require a manually inserted absolute value -- the next values
(increasing or decreasing by a difference) can be formulas calculating
from the value before.
Please provide a small reduced spreadsheet document. It should contain
nothing more than those things needed to trigger the error.
Please post the content of a cell with the generated
Multiple.Operations formula and please post the content of the formula
cell, which will be the first parameter in the Multiple.Operations.
In the "old" calculation these first cells (E5 and D6) could refer to
formulas ina remote cells which increases the flexibility and the
usability of the tool remarkably.
What is a "remote cell". Do you try to use a cell from a different
I have not found a regression. But I have difficulties to understand
your explanation and therefore might miss something.
