Grade_CellBehavior.ods <>

In the uploaded Calc file 'Grade_CellBehavior.ods' the column AE and BH are just simple cells with number values. The Sheet '1.' in this file is a sheet from another, bigger Calc file ( called here 'file1' ) in which I have such sheets for every pupil. I have also a Calc file 'file2' in which I have too such columns, as AE and BH, but cells in these columns are not just cells with number values, but links for 'file1'. So, in the school I fill out the cells in the 'file1' file, come home, copy the 'file1' into appropriate directory, open the 'file2' Calc file and get the values into it from 'file1' automatically. I hope this is clear so far.

As one can see in 'Grade_CellBehavior.ods' when one change the value '3' in AE6 to value '2' then the value in AD6 changes automatically to value "!?". This shows me that a teacher closed the grade for that Subject badly. But this doesn't work in the 'file2', because e.g. the value in AE6 is not just a number, but a value that we get is a link from 'file1'. I hope this is clear.

How can I solve this to works in the 'file2' too?

I can see no reason why the formula you have in AD6 should not work equally well with values in AE6 and so on drawn from another document file - as here in file2 from file1. Are you sure your formula in AD6 of file2 is correct? Does it work if you test it by (temporarily) inserting simple numbers into AE6 and so on in place of the references to file1?

What happens if you go to Tools | Cell Contents > | Recalculate? Does that change anything?

I trust this helps.
