Description fcoiffie 2005-11-09 08:42:38 UTC
In a cell, I put a following formula like this one : 
If I merge this cell with the previous one (which is empty), the new cell 
contains the result of the formula instead of the formula. 
After merging, the new cell should contain the real content of the previous 
cell, not only the appearance/result.

Can confirm - Windows XP SP2, 00o-dev 2.0.169

Like fcoiffie said:
1) Open a new spreadsheet
2) Put the numbers 1 & 2 in cells D2 and E2, respectively
3) Put the formula "=D2+E2" in cell E4. (The result is, of course, 3.)
4) Merge cells D4 and E4 w/ the merge cells button. Choose to move "the contents
of the hidden cells into the first cell."
5) Merged cell D4-E4 now contains the number "3" rather than the formula "=D2+E2"

Confirmed issue.
