In OpenOffice Calc Spreadsheet I am getting an error "#NAME?" when using the "=" function to reference a cell on another spreadsheet.  This is only occurring when referencing certain spreadsheets.  These sheets were password protected, but I have removed the protection.

1. click on any cell and type "=".

We'd need to see an example, ideally one that we could share publically, but a
private one if necessary.
