This defect is migrated from Symphony defect as below: Sym2_10737 Database formulas do not work well with wildcard characters when there are multiple conditions

@email@example.com Can you please contribute a bug description telling normal users like me what the problem is?

Confirmed also in AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1548193 Step: 1. Open the sample file with AOO, and then check results of each formula with conditions 2 or 3. 2. Compare the result with the file that open with Excel. Database formulas do not work well with wildcard characters when there are multiple conditions, and the Boolean logic of them are "OR".

Seems more or less reproducible with "AOO 4.0.1 – German UI / German locale [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4.0 User Profile used for all predecessor versions, but until now it's unknown for me what exactly the problem is (a) I compared view of both attachments 2013-12-26 07:50 CET, liuping with MS Excel viewer and AOO. Both show the same results so I only will consider "sample file2" for further tests. (b) Excel Viewer shows identical values in columns J,K (c) With menu 'Tools -> Options -> Calc -> Calculate - Regular Expressions in Formulas disabled' results in column J are completely nonsense, only "0" or "#VALUE!" (d) with "Regular Expressions Enabled" in most relevant cells of column J values appears, but except J12, J13 all values are different (e) Gnumeric Tabellenkalkulation 1.10.16 shows the same values in columns J, K. (f) With OOo 3.3.0 Checking "'Tools -> Options -> Calc -> Calculate - Search criteria must apply to whole cells" increases number of correct results. But gambling with that setting has unpredictable result with different OOo / AOO versions. (g) we definitively have not a new issue here, that never worked correctly with OOo / AOO (h) Seems to work with Lotus Symphony Release 3.0.1 @liuping: (z) there are 2 attachments with more or less the same contents. What one is "THE" sample file? Why do you attach 2 ones? (y) It would really ease to reproduce your results if you would read and heed the bug writing guidelines, for example: * "Be precise, avoid general rare statements ... "does not work"" * "Be clear, don't simply describe what your problem is, explain it so that other users can reproduce the bug " (x) Please contribute information how to find out that "multiple conditions" is one reason for the different values (w) Is it sure that not additionally other bugs are reason for different results between Excel and AOO? It would help to have 1 single result in the sample document with step by step instruction proving that wildcards and multiple conditions cause a bug. (v) We have to separate "open-import" bugs from calculation bugs. Can you reproduce at least a single wrong result with an original.ods created with AOO? (u) Is it known that AOO supports that multi condition wildcard use? (t) any Idea why J12, J13 show the same results as Excel?

sample file1 is *.xlsx ; sample file2 is *.xls I check menu 'Tools -> Options -> Calc -> Calculate - Enabled Regular Expressions in formulas' in column J ,results in column J are still "#VALUE!" column J in symphony3.0.1 FP2 same with MS2010 compared result please refer symphony&MS2010.jpg and AOO&MS2010.jpg
Comment 9 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-03-20 17:25:28 UTC
Hm, is this really related to "multiple conditions" or simply naive import of MS Wildcards what can not work with AOO, see "Issue 17993 - Add wildcards to the standard autofilter "? Or "Issue 32344 - Simple wildcards * and ? as opposed to regular expressions"? Currently I can't tell. See also for now.
Comment 10 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-03-20 17:30:35 UTC
Or also related to "Issue 123995 - Wrong results with wildcard characters if there are multiple conditions when importing *.xls "? This Wildcard area needs some cleanup.

Wildcards not supported.
