Optional string. Represents a unit of measure. The default is NUM. For details about NUM, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa218417(v=office.10) Units of measure.

F

Optional string. Represents the element's formula. This attribute can contain the string "someFormula" if the formula exists locally, "No Formula" if the formula is locally deleted or blocked, or "Inh" if the formula is inherited.

If the attribute is not present, the element's formula is a simple constant, for example, <element> 5 </element>.
