Description Tamara Walton-Gray 2014-11-07 00:50:04 UTC
My Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet (.xls) Document wont open at all, it goes to a blank screen and then the program crashes.

All other calc files work fine, its just this one, but this file works fine on Microsoft excel on my mums computer

I confirm that AOO 4.1.1 can't open this file.
Very strange because, OOo 2.4.2 opens without crash.

Seems to be specific with Windows 7 (for me Pro x64).

I don't reproduce with AOO 4.1.1 and WinXP.

Ok, its very strange...

Forget it!
The spreadsheet opens but after a very loooooong time.
You must wait till 10 to 15 min.

Benchmark:

- AOO 4.1.1 with Debian Wheezy x64 = 13 min.
- AOO 4.1.1 with Win7 Pro x64 = 12 min.
- AOO 4.1.1 with WinXP = 16 min.

- OOo 2.4.2 with WinXP = 2 min.

- LibO 4.3.2.2 with WinXP = 1 sec.
