As I understand it, the problem occurs usually if you have a newly 
created profile, and you haven't made any config changes in the Calc 
options. In which case the file that contains the Formula syntax setting, 
~/.openoffice.org/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Calc.xcu, 
never gets created. When OO goes to look for the formula syntax, it 
doesn't have a default defined and throws up the error Bas got. I can 
recreate the bug if I rename that file and open a spreadsheet that 
doesn't have a print range already defined then try to set a repeating 
row print range.
