You can convert the formulas to only keep the values by doing a
copy/paste special where what you will keep are only the numbers. To
do: select the cells, copy (CTRL-C or Edit > Copy) and then paste
special (Edit > Paste Special), and select to keep only the numbers.
You may be prompted to inform you that you are pasting over existing
data: if so, just accept. Then, if you look in the cells, you should
now only have the results of the cells. I recommend you paste to a new
worksheet to keep the formulas intact for a future use.

I hope this helps.

Hi Miss  K.
The purpose of your request is not clear.
For the situation where I want to de-reference a value I use copy and
then paste-special selecting only numbers.
If you want 167 in A1 and 16.7 in A2 so that is stays 16.7 even if A1
changes then possibly in B1 put =A1/10 then copy B1 and in A2 
paste-special selecting only numbers to paste.
I arrange the type of calculation above so that I can copy/paste-
rows or columns at a time.

Users Ahoy:

Is there a way to get LO (v5.2.7.2) calc to extract the numerical 
value from a cell, and use that instead of the cell reference in 
further calculations?

Frinstance, if I have 167 in cell A1, and want 16.7 in A2, how can
program it, (if at all)?

If I put =A1/10 into A2, A2 will contain A1/10, not 16.7,even
it will display as 16.7.

I want to get away from cell references and use the contained
Can I?

I thought that =VALUE(A1)/10 might work, but the result continues
use the cell reference, not the contained value.
