1) The UI function "B" is specified by OpenFormula as "BINOM.DIST.RANGE" ( but AOO writes it as "B" into the XML.

2) The UI function "EASTERSUNDAY" is not specified by OpenFormula. LibreOffice writes it as "ORG.OPENOFFICE.EASTERSUNDAY", so should AOO.

3) The most serious one: The UI function "RRI" is spec'ed as such by OpenFormula ( but AOO writes it as "ZGZ" to the ODS file which is the German translation of "RRI".

4) The UI function "TDIST" is spec'ed as "LEGACY.TDIST" ( but AOO writes it as "TDIST".

You are right for all four items.
Do you want to fix it?

FYI: related

@rh: Uhm did not do any OpenOffice related dev for a long time now :) Nobody else here actively developing for AOO?

In this case, it's not just changing the function names in the code, but for sake of backwards compatibility, the old "wrong" function names still need to be supported in the import filter.

Hi Daniel, we would be very happy, if such a well known, experienced developer of OpenOffice as you, decides to develop for Apache OpenOffice. When you will look at the commits you will notice, that there are only very few developers working on the core since IBM decides to significantly reduce its commitment. Your help is highly welcomed.
