In my instance, blanks are interpreted as zeros, so your problem doesn't appear here.

However, a long-term annoyance to me is LO interpreting alpha chars as illicit in some formulae.

That was done in apparent slavish adherence to micro$$ bad practice; good old 123, and Mosaic Twin, took such chars to be zero.

Using your example on my system, if D10 = something possibly useful, such as "insert revenue here", the dreaded #VALUE! will appear.

You could try, z.b.,


For no apparent reason, that works to interpret alphas as zero, and so might work for you.

This example is unnecessarily verbose, just to illustrate the idea.

Other such redundant function employments have worked in other places, so you could tinker with the
