Description chrk 2008-06-18 17:53:37 UTC
On the German users list someone asked recently if there was a limitation to the
use of matrices in formulas. I answered by citing by citing the help line for
error #512, which states a limitation of 655534 _Byte_:

"Formel zu lang
Compiler: Die Gesamtanzahl interner Elemente (d. h. Operatoren, Variablen,
Klammern) in der Formel übersteigt 512. Interpreter: Die Gesamtanzahl der durch
die Formel erzeugten Matrizen übersteigt 150. Hierzu gehören auch einfache
Funktionen mit einer zu großen Matrix als Parameter (max. 0xFFFE, z. B. 65534

Found in OOo 2.4.1 and 2.4(portable)DE-de on Win32

In a reply Eike Rathke pointed out that this pice of information was outdated:
Currently the maximum size of a matrix was 524288 _Elements_ (not bytes) and
could contain 8 full columns of 65536 lines.

He asked me to file an issue, so I did.

The list of all error codes in Calc help scalc/05/02140000.xhp will be revised
for OOo 3.1. As first solution I deleted the wrong sentence in CWS hcshared19.
