Select Function applied with no selected range

LibreOffice automatically suggests a cell range, provided that the spreadsheet contains data. If the cell range already contains a function, you can combine it with the new one to yield the function applied to the range data. If the range contains filters, the Subtotal function is inserted instead of the selected function.

Select Function applied on a selected range

When the selected range has two or more rows, the function is calculated for each column. The results are placed in empty cells on the first available row below the range, one result per column.

When the selected range has one row, the function result is placed in the first available cell on the right of the selected range.
