It would be great if I could tell OO, that there are cells that should not be
addapted in the formula when copying the cell containig the formula to a new
location. I think you could introduce a function in the formula editor to define
a link to a cell as static (something like fixcell(A1) or so). The cells in this
function would not get addapted to the new location when copying a cell
containing a fourmula with this expression to a new location.

this sounds like absolute references:
place a $ sign before each cell refernce you don't want to be updated:
=$A$1 in C5 and copy C5 to E3 => E3 has =$A$3 too.
you can also have only 1 $, so the other is a dynamic refernce.
There is also a toolbar option which you can find in the paste or
insert category of the edit toolbar dialogue.

Sorry, couldn't find that. But this shows that this function isn't
really intuitive. Wouldn't it be easier to find, if one could change
these references when entering the formula? Maybe with a popup menu
when right-clicking on the selected cells while editing the formula
or so.

you should place the $ in front of column or row indices in your
formula:
cell A3: you enter a formula like (without quotation marks) "=SUM
(B1:B10)".
if you place a $ in front of B and 1 and 10 and you copy the formula
from its original cell to another cell, B,1 and 10 are not adjusted.
so "=SUM($B$1:$B$10)" remains this way.

While editing a formula, you can alter the state of a reference:
Move the cursor into a cell reference and press SHIFT+F4 (repeatedly).
