    In the spreadsheet when referencing other cells, only non-empty cell values are carried over

    1. Click into a cell  (i.e. A20)

    2. Enter a value ( abc ); hit return or tab to another cell

    3. Click back into the cell ( A20)

    4. In that cell, enter a reference to another cell that is empty  (  = A19  );  hit return or tab to another cell

    5. The value is not replaced with the 'empty' value from the referenced cell; the original value ( abc )  remains

    6. Enter a value in the referenced cell ( enter  xyz  into  A19) - the cell that has the reference ( A20 ) changes its value correctly to the referenced value (xyz from A19)

    7. Go back to the referenced cell ( A19 ),  delete the value;   the cell that has the reference ( A20 ) does not change, it still displays the 'old' value ( xyz )

    Essentially, if a referenced cell has a null value, the null value is not carried to the cell reference.  We were able to recreate on the demo spreadsheet ( http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/spreadsheet/index ).   

    Thank you
