Add-in Functions

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

Add-in concept

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 .

Add-ins supplied

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

Analysis Functions Part One

Analysis Functions Part Two

DAYSINMONTH

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

Syntax

DAYSINMONTH(Date)

Date: Specifies whether a given date falls within a leap year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

Example

DAYSINMONTH(A1) returns 29 days if A1 contains 2/17/68, a valid date for February 1968.

DAYSINYEAR

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

Syntax

DAYSINYEAR(Date)

Date: Specifies whether a given date falls within a leap year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

Example

DAYSINYEAR(A1) returns 366 days if A1 contains 2/29/68, a valid date for the year 1968.

ISLEAPYEAR

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).

Syntax

ISLEAPYEAR(Date)

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

Example

ISLEAPYEAR(A1) returns 1, if A1 contains 2/29/68, the valid date 29th of 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(2/29/68), because this would first evaluate 2 divided by 29 devided by 68, and then calculate the ISLEAPYEAR function from this small number as a serial date number.

MONTHS

Calculates the difference in months between two dates.

Syntax

MONTHS(Start date, End date, Type)

Start date: a date.

Data_2 is the second record array.

Type: Calculates the type of difference. Possible values include 0 (interval) and 1 (in calendar months).

ROT13

Encrypts a character 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.

Syntax

ROT13(Text)

Text: Enter the character string to be encrypted. ROT13(ROT13(Text)) decrypts the code.

WEEKS

Calculates the difference in weeks between two dates.

Syntax

WEEKS(Start date, End date, Type)

Start date: a date.

Data_2 is the second record array.

Type: Calculates the type of difference. The possible values are 0 (interval) and 1 (in numbers of weeks).

WEEKSINYEAR

Calculates the number of weeks of the year in which the date entered 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.

Syntax

WEEKSINYEAR(Date)

Date: Specifies whether a given date falls within a leap year. The Date parameter must be a valid date according to the locale settings of LibreOffice.

Example

WEEKSINYEAR(A1) returns 53 if A1 contains 2/17/70, a valid date for the year 1970.

YEARS

Calculates the difference in years between two dates.

Syntax

YEARS(Start date, End date, Type)

Start date: a date.

Data_2 is the second record array.

Type: Calculates the type of difference. Possible values are 0 (interval) and 1 (in calendar years).
