calc crash if I try to expand a cell that contains "Err:520" e.g. F15 cell in my worksheet (attached)

if I try to it in Windows XP with libreoffice 4.0.1 (32bit) I don't have any cells with "Err:520"

run it in a terminal i get:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException'

Additional info:
* libreoffice-x86_64-4.0.1-5

Steps to reproduce:
open the file attached and try to expand the F15 cell
This task depends upon

mmh... a weeks ago I reported a bugrelated to an already existent one and the result was that looks like every libreoffice interfaces depend on almost all of the other ones, so... could you try to install base (without calc started) and try to reprouce the bug? if your problems still unsolved, then, we could be on a real, independent bug :)
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Wednesday, 27 March 2013, 21:53 GMT
still happens...
Comment by Andreas Radke (AndyRTR) - Wednesday, 27 March 2013, 22:34 GMT
Proove it to be a packaging bug or report it upstream. So far I've never seen this before in Arch. Make sure all optional dependencies are installed.

Google also finds some results for "Err:520"...
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Friday, 29 March 2013, 10:26 GMT
I've installed all optional dependencies but with no luck.

I open an upstream bug ( ), but since this problem doesn't occur in Win XP SP3 (almost vanilla), I think this is our problem.

I found that if I try to expand any cell calc crashes with the same error!
Comment by Jorge Barroso (jorge_barroso) - Friday, 29 March 2013, 12:44 GMT
mmm... could be but think that Win and linux are different... I tried to expand the cell and calc didn't crash.
Comment by Andreas Radke (AndyRTR) - Friday, 29 March 2013, 13:28 GMT
Please check if you are running into this one: or if it is something different.
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Friday, 29 March 2013, 13:36 GMT
libreoffice is becoming a fiend:

1. open calc
2. start to write a formula (namely type '=') in any cell and calc crashes

mattia: had the same problem.
after uninstalling all libreoffice-extensions Calc doesn't crash any more on my box.

In output of "pacman -Q" I saw that some extensions are not version 4.0.1:

$ pacman -Q | grep libreoffice
libreoffice-base 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-calc 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-common 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-de 4.0.1-1
libreoffice-draw 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-extension-ct2n 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-diagram 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-hunart 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-nlpsolver 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-extension-numbertext 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-oooblogger 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-presentation-minimizer 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-extension-report-builder 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-extension-typo 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-watch-window 3.4.5-2
libreoffice-extension-wiki-publisher 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-impress 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-kde4 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-math 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-sdk 4.0.1-5
libreoffice-writer 4.0.1-5

so I decided to uninstall all extensions in order to test if a old extension could be the reason:
# pacman -R $(pacman -Qq | grep libreoffice-extension)

result: error didn't occur any more on my side.

I can't confirm this and no ther users it seems. Going to close this soon as "works for me".
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Saturday, 20 April 2013, 14:30 GMT
it happens with 4.0.2 too
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Saturday, 20 April 2013, 14:40 GMT
tried to remove $HOME/.config/libreoffice

but no luck
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Saturday, 11 May 2013, 09:14 GMT
with latest release there is a little improvement:

now cells show me correctly the values of formulas, that is it doesn't show me "Err:520"
but if I try to expand it I get the same crash
Comment by mattia (nTia89) - Friday, 31 May 2013, 18:33 GMT
with latest official release
(which provides the latest numbertext version, too)


I'm not sure if it was definitively a numbertext problem or other...
