I have a couple of Basic macros I use in grade sheets for courses I teach.
I've been using them for years without any problem.
But suddenly in one sheet I am getting the error "#REF!",
and the content of the cell shows for example as

='LG'(A16)

whereas in a sheet where it is working, it would show as

=LG(A16)

without the quotes. If I edit the cell and remove the quotes,
it just puts them back in again. Rebuilding the sheet from
scratch seemed to fix the problem, but when I closed the program
and reopened the sheet later it was corrupted again.

Problem originally happened with 3.0 (Ubuntu), but I have just
upgraded to 3.1.1 and the problem persists.

Hi,
You probably have on the same column or row a cell containing : LG
Be more imaginative for your names, or :
Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org Calc > Calculate
uncheck : Automatically find column and row labels
