The following table is an overview of the error messages for LibreOffice Calc. If the error occurs in the cell that contains the cursor, the error message is displayed on the Status Bar.
Error Code  Message  Explanation 

###
none 
The cell is not wide enough to display the contents.  
501  Invalid character  Character in a formula is not valid. 
502  Invalid argument  Function argument is not valid, for example, a negative number for the root function. 
503

Invalid floating point operation  A calculation results in an overflow of the defined value range. 
504  Parameter list error  Function parameter is not valid, for example, text instead of a number, or a domain reference instead of cell reference. 
508  Error: 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  Compiler: the total number of internal tokens, (that is, operators, variables, brackets) in the formula exceeds 512. 
513  String overflow  Compiler: an identifier in the formula exceeds 64 KB in size. Interpreter: 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. 
516  Internal syntax error  Matrix is expected on the calculation stack, but is not available. 
517  Internal syntax error  Unknown code, for example, a document with a newer function is loaded in an older version that does not contain the function. 
518  Internal syntax error  Variable is not available 
519

No result (#VALUE is in the cell rather than Err:519!)  The 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 set under Tools  Options  LibreOffice Calc  Calculate. 
523  The calculation procedure does not converge  Function missed a targeted value, or iterative references do not reach the minimum change within the maximum steps that are set. 
524
invalid references (instead of Err:524 cell contains #REF) 
Compiler: a column or row description name could not be resolved. Interpreter: in a formula, the column, row, or sheet that contains a referenced cell is missing.  
525
invalid names (instead of Err:525 cell contains #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, addin 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  Interpreter: References, such as when a cell references a cell, are too encapsulated. 
532

Division by zero  Division operator / if the denominator is 0 Some more functions return this error, for example: VARP with less than 1 argument STDEVP with less than 1 argument VAR with less than 2 arguments STDEV with less than 2 arguments STANDARDIZE with stdev=0 NORMDIST with stdev=0
