Description spa2036 2009-10-14 17:02:55 UTC
In a large spreadsheet (4,2Mb), 11 tabs Calc crashes while deleting cell
contents in just one specific tab. When deleting cell contents in other tabs,
the program continues to work.
I found a work-around by disable the automatic recalculation. After deleting the
cell contents I enable automatic recalculation and Calc keeps running.
I tried different ways to delete cell contents: by using backspace, delete
button and through the menu Bewerken - Inhoud verwijderen.
The content I try to delete are numbers and plain tekst (pasted in the
spreadsheet from a database query). The tab contains only five columns and over
5800 lines. Exporting to another file format ( .XLS makes it 48 Mb) and edit the
tab crashes OO as well.

please attach a sample document so that we can reproduce the problem.
Comment 2 spa2036 2009-10-14 23:19:01 UTC

As you can read the document is 4,2 Mb in size. Your server only allows me to
upload 1 Mb. Zipped it is still 2 Mb. Do you have a FTP server to upload?

How to proceed from here?

you can send the sample document to me by E-Mail.
Your OOo version is outdated. Can you please try 3.1.1?
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2009-10-15 08:43:46 UTC
Reproducible with "Ooo 3.1.1 WIN XP DE-multilingual version German UI activated
[OOO310m19 (Build 9420)]"!
I deleted row 12 in Sheet "qry Dessin" using menu 'Edit -> Delete Cells ->
complete Row', and OOo crashed. Unfortunately no crash report has been created.

You can download the sample file from a.m. URL

Hi Niklas, please have a look

It's a problem of memory usage for undo. The undo action has to be optimized,
but that's nothing for 3.3.
