Follow-up Comment #7, bug #51512 (project octave):


The OOXML specs are here:

Looking through it I think several regexps in __OCT_xlsx2oct__.m may have to
be reconsidered. Once done there's no need for helper subfunctions. I know
what to do but the next weeks I lack time, hopefully I can pick that up after
my vacation, or maybe you or someone else will beat me to it.
Now that I mention: I remember to have struggled a bit with it before; at the
time I found Excel itself wasn't always complying to the ECMA rules and
Libre-/OpenOffice still less.

I agree LibreOffice is a bit lacking. You may want to file an upstream bug
report about setting the result type of boolean formulas to "numeric". The
folks at LibreOffice seem relatively responsive.
