I am disappointed that Libre Office does not treat blank cells as a zero in math calculations. I have a dozen spreadsheets from Excel and Open Office that take advantage of this fact.

I'm not sure what you're missing, but my LO spreadsheets always treat blank cells as zeros. I'm not that well versed in spreadsheets, but I've never had the problem you describe.

I have just tried in LO 3.6 and a blank cell is treated as zero. A cell with text in it such as a space causes an error in calculations. Do you mean that Excel and Open Office treat white space characters as zero.
