Subject RE: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 35290] - FormulaRecord getValue &setVal ue enhancement
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2005 17:59:46 GMT

I started of trying to implement fix for 35288 but 
realised that FormulaRecord assumes and stores only
double value as the result of the formula.

I checked OO documentation 
(pg 163 of http://sc.openoffice.org/excelfileformat.pdf) 
and it has description of how excel stores different
value types for a formula result.

So the patch attempts to do just that...


... but I assumed that for string formulas, the
value is not stored since the value bytes are
fixed length (8 bytes) so cannot hold a String
of arbitrary length.

Now, FormulaRecord can accept and serialize 
values for formula of types other than double,
this will enable a fix for 35288 (since instead
of casting to specific Record, we hace option 
of casting to FormulaRecord too since now it
can accept different data types in the setvalue)

(hope I made some sense :)
