(1) General comment. I think some more research may be need on this function. Do we understand why the arguments to this function are Numbers, while the arguments to GCD are Integers? Why is there nothing in this function’s description that limits the function to processing integer values? And what is meant by “get results based on international standards”?

  • This function is not an ODFF standard

  • Firstly even though GCD is suppose to take integer argument, it will give return non-error result for non-integer but the output is in integer form but if we consider non-integer input for GCD_EXCEL2003, it will return non-integer and real value hence it can be as small as e^-16. This is what results I found on checking with CalC which I believe pretty much summarizes the query.
  • Removed ODFF
