Hi I'm porting a spread sheet from Excel to LibreOffice Calc and I've
fallen over an incompatibility
as spread sheet will be used by both tools is there a switch I can use.
  The problem
=CELL("filename",A1) in LO returns
'file:///C:/Users/Ian Mac/Desktop/Accounts15-16.xls'#$Sep 15

where as in Excel the returned data is different
  cant easily paste the excel result here but the terminal filename is in
square brackets
is there a way I can either spot which program I'm using and therefore
switch the detection of the sheet name

using  LibreOffice

returns TRUE in Calc and FALSE in Excel

Just fallen down another Excel/Calc wormhole - indirect addresses formats are different on Excel its 'sheetFred'!$C:$C where are its 'sheetFred'.$C:$C in Calc fortunatley the above test works for this just as well. :-)
