Custom functions are not saved in a workbook. So, if a worksheet that contains a custom function is loaded in a workbook that is not aware of the function (or in MS Excel), the “#NAME!” error is displayed after the cell containing the function has been re-evaluated. To avoid this situation, you can set the CustomFunctionExportMode option to CustomFunctionExportMode.CalculatedValue and custom functions will be converted to their calculated values when saving a document.
