Is there any way to force calc to treat text in a cell as equivalent to zero when a number is expected? I always thought that this was the normal presumption, but it appears not to be, at least for LO, Build ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b under Win7.

In spreadsheets imported from Twin (remember MS_DOS?) I have many cells marked "xxx.xx", which indicate to the human operator that if there is to be a numerical entry there, it must be manually supplied, as opposed to being automatically calculated or transferred. Neither blanks nor numerical zeros provide the same visual clues.
