Description joropo 2008-08-14 04:26:53 UTC
When Allow = Cell Range the check box [] "Allow Blank Cells" should be
identified as [] "Allow Empty Cells"
Ranges which contain character blanks pass validation and *ARE* allowed to be
entered, even with check box cleared!
Nothing dramatic.  Simply more meaningful user interface.
Blank not equal Empty.
Empty not equal Blank.
Comment 1 Edwin Sharp 2013-12-17 18:48:47 UTC
When Cell range = a,b,c.
Allow blank cells is checked:
Tools - Detective - Mark Invalid Data -> doesn't mark an empty cell, marks a cell with space.
Allow blank cells is unchecked:
Tools - Detective - Mark Invalid Data -> marks both empty cell and cell with space.
So Allow blank cells -> Allow empty cells.
