I need, of course, formulars to be case sensitive. This can be set in
the options for calc. The option is not saved permanently and every
time I open a spreadsheet, I need to set the option again.
How can I save this option permanently so I don't need to set it over
and over again?
To clarify: I need the string comparisons of IF() to be case sensitive:
'if(a1 = "x"; ...) is, of course, different from 'if(a1 = "X"; ...)'.
Why would anyone make them not case sensitive unless explicitly
specified, and how do I specify case sensitiveness per formula?
All spreadsheets had been case insensitive ever since.
Use the EXACT function for case sensitive comparison.
The calculation options do not apply to Excel files which is why you
have to reset this option every time you load the file. The Excel file
format has no place where this setting can be stored.
The OpenFormula specification says that comparisons are case sensitive
6.4.7Infix Operator "="
Summary:Report if two values are equal
Semantics:Returns TRUE if two values are equal. If the values differ in
type, return FALSE. If the values are both Number, return TRUE if they
are considered equal, else return FALSE. If they are both Text, return
TRUE if the two values match, else return FALSE. For Text values, if the
calculation settingHOST-CASE-SENSITIVEisfalse, text is compared but
characters differencing only in case are considered equal. If they are
both Logicals, return TRUE if they are identical, else return FALSE.
Error valuescannotbe compared to a constant Error value to determine if
that is the same Error value.
