I've been having problems with certain type of *references* in Calc.

I was not aware that you could do that in any product. It is not
supported in Calc of which I am aware. Villeroy has a messy solution
(see post 6). Well, you probably should read all the posts...
So, the ony soltions I have seen based on a quick search is to either
define a range, or to use offset.
The most problematic cases are related to functions such as
"indirect()", "address()" and the like. For example, the following
formula "should" tell whether a number in "A1" is prime or not:
but Calc doesn't seem to accept the type of reference
("ini_row:fin_row"). Instead I have to add a "column" to the
reference, as in:
to make it work in Calc.
There are several settings that affect the way Calc parses and shows
some type of cell references, so I wonder whether there is some
setting that I should change for Calc to be able to accept this type
of references ("ini_row:fin_row"), or whether this is some kind of
bug or lack of a feature.
A similar issue happens with column-only references, such as
To be clear, I'm not saying that row-only (or column-only) references
are better in any way. I'm just trying to make them work as in (a.k.a
"compatible with") other spreadsheet software.
If there is a better place (mailing list, irc, forum,...) to ask this
question, please let me know.
