Question: How to make string 'exportable' to Excel

=Contrib.$A16 in ODS is correctly exported to Excel as =Contrib!$A16 (note the "!")

The problem is that in the formula =INDIRECT("Contrib.$A"&16) the string is not changed in the export (of course), so this results in an error in Excel

How can I create a formula that both works in LiberOffice and Excel?
