Hi Marc,

Is there an equivalent Calc function for the Google Sheets function
"QUERY"? When I downloaded my spreadsheet from Google Sheets as a Calc
file, the "QUERY" function was not translated into an equivalent Calc

My original Google Sheets function is:"=QUERY('NBBP Address

I suppose it might help if we actually knew what this Google specific
function did / is supposed to do ?


Ah, yes

It references a list of names in another sheet called "NBBP Address
Book" and shows the list in a column on the first sheet A1.

So for example, in "NBBP Address Book" sheet


Will then appear in sheet A1 as the same:


I should also add that the Google "=QUERY" then lists the names as above, but, the formula only shows on the first name (Name1) and the other names in the list are displayed as names. This allows a user to copy/paste the other names without having any formula appear when clicking in the field.

I use the list as a reference list to help users copy/paste names into other fields on the A1 sheet. It avoids users from spelling the names with errors.
