When saving as an xls document originally created in either Calc or Excel you 
can't save it as a shared spreadsheet.  When opening an xls document that was 
originally created in Excel as a shared document many users can edit it in 
Excel, but only one user can edit it with Calc.  If you save these in the ods 
format sharing works, but we would then need to install the compatibility pack 
on all PCs in the environment, which is less than ideal.  If you could get 
OpenOffice to be able to share an xls document we could eliminate a large 
number of MS Office installs.

I have the same problem.

Can anyone confirm if such issue is a bug or a feature enhancement? In the
second case is there a roadmap for the implementation?
