LibreOffice 7.1 Help

The following describes and lists some of the available add-in functions.

You will also find a description of the LibreOffice Calc add-in interface in the Help. In addition, important functions and their parameters are described in the Help for the Shared LibraryLibreOffice Calc add-in DLL.

LibreOffice contains examples for the add-in interface of LibreOffice Calc.

Calculates the number of days in the month in which the given date occurs.

DAYSINMONTH(Date)

Date is any date in the desired month of the desired year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

=DAYSINMONTH(A1) returns 29 days if A1 contains 1968-02-17, a valid date for February 1968.

Calculates the number of days in the year in which the given date occurs.

DAYSINYEAR(Date)

Date is any date in the desired year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

=DAYSINYEAR(A1) returns 366 days if A1 contains 1968-02-29, a valid date for the year 1968.

Determines whether a year is a leap year. If yes, the function will return the value 1 (TRUE); if not, it will return 0 (FALSE).

ISLEAPYEAR(Date)

Date specifies whether a given date falls within a leap year. The Date parameter must be a valid date.

=ISLEAPYEAR(A1) returns 1, if A1 contains 1968-02-29, the valid date 29th February 1968 in your locale setting.

You may also use =ISLEAPYEAR(DATE(1968;2;29)) or =ISLEAPYEAR("1968-02-29") giving the date string in the ISO 8601 notation.

Never use =ISLEAPYEAR(29/02/68), because this would first evaluate 29 divided by 2 divided by 68, and then calculate the ISLEAPYEAR function from this small number as a serial date number.

Calculates the difference in months between two dates.

MONTHS(StartDate; EndDate; Type)

StartDate is the first date

EndDate is the second date

Type specifies the type of difference to calculate. Possible values include 0 (interval) and 1 (in calendar months).

Encrypts a text string by moving the characters 13 positions in the alphabet. After the letter Z, the alphabet begins again (Rotation). By applying the encryption function again to the resulting code, you can decrypt the text.

ROT13(Text)

Text is the text string to be encrypted. ROT13(ROT13(Text)) decrypts the code.

Calculates the difference in weeks between two dates.

WEEKS(StartDate; EndDate; Type)

StartDate is the first date

EndDate is the second date

Type specifies the type of difference to calculate. The possible values are 0 (interval) and 1 (in numbers of weeks).

Calculates the number of weeks in the year in which the given date occurs. The number of weeks is defined as follows: a week that spans two years is added to the year in which most days of that week occur.

WEEKSINYEAR(Date)

Date is any date in the desired year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

WEEKSINYEAR(A1) returns 53 if A1 contains 1970-02-17, a valid date for the year 1970.

Calculates the difference in years between two dates.

YEARS(StartDate; EndDate; Type)

StartDate is the first date

EndDate is the second date

Type specifies the type of difference to calculate. Possible values are 0 (interval) and 1 (in calendar years).

Add-ins can also be implemented through the LibreOffice API.
