Gnumeric works

It would help to at least mention what the differences are, what was expected
and what failed, best as "formula in cell ... produces wrong result, should be
... instead". So: sums in row 24 yield 0.

This is because OOo doesn't support the simple wildcards used by Excel, e.g.
"OR*" for strings starting with "OR". OOo uses regular expressions instead.
Switch on Tools->Options->Calc->Calculate "Enable regular expressions in
formulas" and change the filter criteria to "^OR.*"

The request for simple wildcards is handled in another issue.
