General error codes

This following table is an overview of the most common error messages for OOo Calc.

Note

The errors that are described as “Internal†errors should not be encountered by users under normal conditions. Errors that are listed as “Not used†are not currently assigned to any error condition and will not occur.

Code

Message

Explanation of the error

501

Invalid character

Character in a formula is not valid. This error is the same as the Invalid Name error (525) except that it occurs within a formula. The cell containing the error will display the #NAME? error reference.

502

Invalid argument

Function argument is not valid; for example, a negative number for the root function. This error also occurs if more than one matching cell is found by the DGET function.

503

Invalid floating point operation

Division by 0, or another calculation that results in an overflow of the defined value range (a value too big or too small).

504

Parameter list error

Function parameter is not valid, for example, text instead of a number, or a domain reference instead of a cell reference.

505

Internal syntax error

Not used.

506

Invalid semicolon

Not used.

507

Pair missing

Not used.

508

Pair missing

Missing bracket, for example, closing brackets, but no opening brackets.

509

Missing operator

Operator is missing, for example, "=2(3+4) * ", where the operator between "2" and "(" is missing.

510

Missing variable

Variable is missing, for example when two operators are together "=1+*2".

511

Missing variable

Function requires more variables than are provided, for example, AND() and OR().

512

Formula overflow

The total number of internal tokens, (that is, operators, variables, brackets) in the formula exceeds 512, or the total number of matrices the formula creates exceeds 150. This includes basic functions that receive too large an array as a parameter.

513

String overflow

An identifier in the formula exceeds 64 KB in size, or a result of a string operation exceeds 64 KB in size.

514

Internal overflow

Sort operation attempted on too much numerical data (max. 100000) or a calculation stack overflow.

515

Internal syntax error

Not used.

516

Internal syntax error

Matrix is expected on the calculation stack, but is not available.

517

Internal syntax error

Unknown error, for example, a document with a newer function is loaded in an older version of Calc that does not contain the function.

518

Internal syntax error

Variable is not available.

519

No result (cell displays #VALUE)

Formula yields a value that does not correspond to the definition, or a cell that is referenced in the formula contains text instead of a number.

520

Internal syntax error

Compiler creates an unknown compiler code.

521

Internal syntax error

No result.

522

Circular reference

Formula refers directly or indirectly to itself and the Iterations option is not selected under Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org Calc > Calculate.

523

The calculation procedure does not converge

Financial statistics function missed a targeted value, or iterations of circular references do not reach the minimum change within the maximum steps that are set.

524

Invalid references (cell displays #REF!)

A column or row description name could not be resolved, or the column, row, or sheet that contains a referenced cell is missing.

525

Invalid names (cell displays #NAME?)

An identifier could not be evaluated, for example, no valid reference, no valid domain name, no column/row label, no macro, incorrect decimal divider, add-in not found.

526

Internal syntax error

Obsolete, no longer used, but could come from old documents if the result is a formula from a domain.

527

Internal overflow

References, such as when a cell references a cell, are too encapsulated or deeply nested. This is an internal error and should not be displayed in OOo version 2.0 or greater.
