More on my erroneous spreadsheet. I see what's going on, if not why.

I've removed rows and columns, so my spreadsheet is now
A1:     blank
B1:     33520
C1      =sum(a1:b1)

Looking in the content.xml file, cell C1 contains the following:

<table:table-cell table:style-name="ce2" table:formula="of:=SUM([.A1:.B1])" office:value-type="float" office:value="0" calcext:value-type="float"><text:p>0</text:p></table:table-cell>

The office:value="0" is what is displayed when the spreadsheet is loaded, while <text:p>0 seems to be ignored. (To show this, I extracted content.xml, hand-edited these to be 999 and 888, and put the file back in the archive, then reopened with Calc. C1 displayed 999)

I have no idea why there should be any values stored in this way - should a spreadsheet not populate itself by calculating when loaded? Presumably the behaviours of and older versions differ in this regard, presumably taking on trust the stored values.

Could someone running a later version check this out please?

It still leaves the question of how the erroneous '0' came to be stored in the first place: it looks as though the stored values are supposed to be the value calculated (3352), storage of which for some reason went wrong somewhere.
