I take two cells, create a formula in a third cell and the

As you can see from the help text (under "### error message"),
this means "The cell is not wide enough to display the contents."
You need either to
o (simplest) increase the column width, or
o reduce the font size, or
o possibly modify the cell formatting so that the displayed
result is narrow enough to fit.
Remember that the result that is too large to be displayed may
itself be an error message.
Gee I wish it was that simple.
Oh, it is, it is!
I reduced the font size from 10 to 6 changed the font style and
increased the column with to the rest of the page. While I do not
get ### any longer, I now see the formula =SUM(A1:A2). What is also
interesting is on the format cells menu, in the box on the lower
right I see the correct result. I am doing this on a blank sheet
with single digits like adding 1 and 2 to get the result of 3.
You evidently have Calc set to display formulae in cells rather than
the results of those formulae. (This can occasionally be useful.)
Just remove the tick from the option at Tools | Options... |
LibreOffice Calc | View | Display | Formulae.
I feel pretty dumb in not getting the result.
I trust this helps.
