Compatibility Names

From Apache OpenOffice Wiki

Optionally, the component can implement the interface, and in the getCompatibilityNames() method return a sequence of locale-dependent compatibility names for a function. These names are used by the spreadsheet application when loading or saving Excel files. They should only be present for a function if it is known to be an Excel add-in function with equivalent functionality.

The sequence of compatibility names for a function may contain several names for a single locale. In that case, all of these names are considered when importing a file. When exporting, the first name is used. If a file is exported in a locale for which no entry is present, the first entry is used. If there is a default locale, the entries for that locale are first in the sequence.
