after opening in m$ excel 2010 (yes, m$ can open ods
spreadsheets, so use that format please!!!) , the formulas were lost,
leaving only the result values in the spreadsheet cells.

Instead of reporting another erroneous LO bug, does someone know how
to forward this error with m4 excel 2010 to m$ bug reporting service?

That is a well known "feature" of MS Office. Excel would replace formulas with calculated values. For some reason, MS thought that was appropriate, even though no other spreadsheet app does that. This was back in the days when MS was ramming their OOXML "standard" through ISO.

I believe, though don't know, that this has been corrected in later versions of MS Office. This is one bug that can be laid squarely at the feet of MS and one might even suspect it was deliberate.

Bottom line, there's nothing for LO to fix.
