Default What does a plus sign in front of a cell reference mean?

how is the following formula:

=+C31*$D$14

different from

=C31*$D$14?

what is the significance of the plus sign when the results are the same?

thanks!

Some people learned about spreadsheets using Lotus 123. Those people used the +
to indicate a formula. And they want to continue using it. It's not necessary.
