Please see the attached document for better understanding.


1 - In a cell, one can use formulas.
2 - In formulas, one sometimes refer to other cells.
3 - One should be able to refer to a cell using lowercase characters.


It's not possible to refer to another cell inside formulas using lowercase

I checked with "Ooo 3.0.1 (DE) Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [OOO300m15
(Build 9379)]" and can confirm the reported effect. 

Same with "1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)]"

For me it is unexpected that lowercase letters cannot be used for cell
references,   because function names (SUM, MIN max) are case insensitive.

Already known from  Issue 16751
