Description jancs 2005-10-03 08:12:47 UTC
How it is noticed: i opened a large MS doc file, containing table 24x3000 cells
containing one word per cell and tried to save it as odt - i got about 1/10 of
the text. Then i tried to copy paste the same - everything was ok until i tried
to save it - the same "success" - i can provide the original file - compressed
it is about 200k (~18M uncompressed).
With the smaler files everything was ok (for example - table 24x2000 went
through - size of MS doc - ~12 M)

Reassigned to ES.
Comment 4 andreschnabel 2005-10-08 10:19:45 UTC
confirming for WinXP, OOo 2.0RC2:
When saving the file as .odt or .sxw, most of the content will be lost. When
saving as .doc, the file will be broken (Word03 crashes on first attempt to open
but can repair the file in a second run. COntent seems to be ok after the repair.)

Leaving P", as we have a data loss here
Comment 5 andreschnabel 2005-10-08 10:26:24 UTC
just a notice: same happens with OOo 1.1.5, when saving to .sxw
Comment 6 eric.savary 2005-10-10 12:59:46 UTC
ES->FLR: please have a look.
Comment 7 Joe Smith 2006-02-01 18:41:26 UTC
Confirmed (probably) for Linux/OOo 2.0.0 also.

I tried creating a large table (>7000 rows by 10 columns) from a text file.
Writer successfully read the text and converted it to a table (although that
conversion took >15'), but I could not select/modify the whole table at once,
and on saving & re-opening, most of the data was lost.

Based on the reports here, I assume this is all the same bug.

Limit of 65535 cells in some internal ops? Just a guess.

today (29.11.2006) i found that some part of the problem remains - i opened the
file (MSword doc) containing large table (~72000 cells), made some editions and
saved the file. After this operation, when tried to open the file in Word, it
crashed without any messages. As the seccond - i can not split the table in this
file using "Split table" - Writer thinks for a while and nothing happens.
Currently i am working with OO 2.04 on WinXP
Comment 9 jancs 2006-11-29 22:42:44 UTC
Forgot to mention: problematic file has a table with 3122 rows, but when looking
under file/properties, after the update it shows number of lines 9743.
Comment 10 jancs 2006-12-05 07:37:51 UTC
under issue http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=72194 the test file
is available.
Comment 11 utomo99 2007-02-13 12:49:48 UTC
@ FLR, IMHO Data Lost need to be considered for better target. 
how about OOo 2.x ? better if OOo 2.3
Thanks

The problem is still there - when trying to save large table as odt, everything
is lost(table 14949 rows to 21 col). 
The same remains with saving the table as MS Word doc - it saves it and the doc
can be opened without problems in OO, but when trying to open it in MS Word, the
result ir broken table and the only possibility offered by MSWord is to convert
table to text (did not tried this).

Issue : Truncating content of large MS doc file containing large table while 
opening through OpenOffice.

Reproduced: yes

Configuration Used :

Steps to Reproduce:

  1> Open OpenOffice

  3> Add a large table like 30X30000
  4> Save file with extension *.odt
  5> Open Office hangs for several minutes for saving.

  While saving and opening the file it gives the message in the status bar as 
not-responding but if the user 
let it alone for sometime it will save the file with the data truncated.
