I have a spreadsheet; Calendar.ods, that refers to (or is linked) another spreadsheet; Begin_Here (copy).ods.

Editing it by using ctrl-/ then F2 works but the same error message appears. Here's the complete array found in Calendar.ods; ='file:///home/Carl/My Documents/Calendar/Begin_Here (copy).ods'#$Sheet1.A1:E75 How can I expand the range?

Are you simply trying to edit the reference to A1:E75 in the referring spreadsheet (Calendar)? As you correctly identify, in order to do this you must first select all of the array range, e.g. by using Ctrl+/. Then you can edit the formula either in the Input Line or _in situ_ in a member cell of the array range after pressing F2. But in each case you will see that the enclosing braces - {} - that denote an array formula disappear when you attempt either edit. You need to reaffirm that you intend an array formula when you complete the edit by using Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of simple Enter - as you must have done to create the array formula in the first place.(The green Accept tick is also no use here.)

As you probably know, you cannot simply add the required braces by typing them yourself; you need to use Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

I trust this helps.
