Can you please tell me how are seeing the formula in actual sheet. The correct ways to write sum function are:

1. SUM(A1:A10)
2. SUM(A1;A2;A3;A4;A5;A6;A7;A8;A9;A10)
3. SUM(A1;A2;B1:B10)

Use Semi-colon instead of Comma in the formula.

Calc does it right like any other software does. It disregards all text values where Excel tries to interprete sequences of digits as numerals.
