I was reading the SYLK entry in Wikipedia:

Also, when I focus the cell in column 2 row 3 in both versions of
Calc listed above I do not see the formula R1C2+R2C2. This formula
is clearly specified in the SYLK file. I don't see any formula in
this cell at all. Is this because Calc's SYLK support is broken or
is something else going on?
Your sample file uses the R1C1 numbered-row-and-column method of
referencing cells, which you probably know Calc does not
support. Since Calc will save a spreadsheet sheet in its version of
SYLK format, it is a fairly simple job to see what works. You need
to change the cell references in the formula to the
column-letter-and-row-number form. It appears that Calc also needs
its name on the first line. Try this:
Will you need "CALC4" instead for one of your versions?
I trust this helps.
