Description Bhavik Merchant 2004-09-03 14:52:29 UTC
Tried to set formulas such as:

MIN('WEEK 1'!F9:'WEEK 1'!F15)


SUM('WEEK 1'!F9:'WEEK 1'!F15)

The FormulaParser is throwing me this:


java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot Parse, sorry : ) Expected

The formulas work fine if entered into the cell from within Excel itself.

Also i noticed the MIN formula will work if you provide an argument list rather
than a range of cells. So i believe the range argument is causing the problem.
