# Error Codes in LibreOffice Calc

From LibreOffice Help

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 SQRT() function, for this please use IMSQRT(). |

503 #NUM! |
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 8192. |

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 #VALUE |
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 #REF |
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 #NAME? |
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, 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 | Interpreter: References, such as when a cell references a cell, are too encapsulated. |

532 #DIV/0! |
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 |
