First: I missed sending to the list, so here again is my posting.
Ok, I admit. I am the moron. Still I do not see the problem. Calc does
not behave the way describe. If you insert a new cell, all its
neighbours are influenced, and you yourself chose how, via the dialogue:
"Move down ", "Move right", "New line" or "New column" (ok I did not
quote the headers correctly, but I am convinced you understand). No
other option is given. So after a cell insertion with option "Move
right" the neighbours really have new positions one step ahead of the
original one. To me, what you describe, Brian, the situation is not
inserting a new cell, but a new value, possibly clearing the old one,
into cell A1, without changing the structure. Am I correct? If so, the
solution is already given by Mark in this thread, namely cell
protection. If this is done in an appropriate way, and the user changes
the value an allowed cell, no spreadsheet program in this world can
hinder that (or warn for it).
I honestly try to understand the core of the original question, but I
cannot, sorry.

I think have a wee difficult to understand what you are doing, as I
do not see any error. You put constants 1 and 2 in the cells A1 and
A2 and a sum formula in A3. Then you insert an empty cell in A1 while
moving the existing content in the cells one step to the right. Hence
after the insertion A2 contains the constant 1, A3 contains the
constant 2 and A4 contains the formula. All references are relative,
so cell A4 now is = sum(A2:A3) giving the result 3, just as before.
That the cell A3 computes 2 is evident as it contains the constant
you put in cell A2 before the move.
You are right that there is no problem to be solved here, but you've
misunderstood the detail of the problem. Although you talk of moving
content "one step to the right", your subsequent description is of the
situation if the insertion into A1 moves the rest of column A *down*.
Instead, the questioner means what he says: he inserts a new, empty
cell into A1, moving the whole of row 1 one place to the right. A2
still has 2 and A3 still has =SUM(A1:A2), so the formula now adds the
2 in A2 to the value of the new empty cell A1 - interpreted as zero,
of course.
