Ubuntu 13.04 > LibreOffice > Calc 4.0.2.2
I'm a veteran Excel-er, but very new to Calc.
I've had to invent some syntax in the following question - hope you can
follow it.
In Excel, to set up a row of column headings (years say), you would do:
A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1:AX1 => formula(=A1+1) [Control+Enter]
and B1 would become set to 1966, ... , AX1 would become set to 2013.
What is the equivalent syntax in Calc?
If I try:
A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1:AX1 => array formula(=(A1:AW1)+1) [Control+Shift+Enter]
B1 is calculated correctly, but the other cells get Err:522 - circular
reference,
which I agree it is in a way, but in Excel this doesn't matter
as the looping through the list is done left to right, so it isn't
really circular.
This is such basic stuff that it doesn't seem to be documented.

A common possible method in Calc would be:
A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1 => formula(=A1+1) [Enter]
B1 => copy
C1:AX1 => paste
So, more steps than in Excel; simpler than an array formula.
I don't remember whether there is a simple keyboard shortcut to
simultaneously insert the same value/formula in multiple cells in
Calc.
Best Regards,
Ady.
