Hello Miss K.

The result, 16.7, may be pasted into another cell using "Paste value". This
will not paste the formula.

If your result cell is displaying the formula and not the result then there
is a Calc setting to change. Even if you are seeing the formula, using
"Paste value" will paste the value and not the formula.

Also, if pasting into another program, e.g. an email, Paste will paste the
value not the formula.

If you see a formula when you look at your result cell then the Calc
options have been set to display formulas, not results.

To return Calc to the usual setting, display result instead of formula, do
the following:

From the menu select Tools > Options

In the dialog displayed Open the Calc branch, select View, and make certain
the "Formulas" option is not checked. Click OK to finish.

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

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

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

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

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