Description Unknown 2003-05-06 03:18:54 UTC
SYLK files that are used by warcraft III will no longer work after being loaded 
and saved in openoffice even when no changes are made. the output file is about 
3/5ths of the length of the original, and is missing what appear to be comments 
at the beggining of the file. as a result, Warcraft III can no longer read them 
properly. This problem is not present when loading and saving in excel. You can 
access the original file and the corrupted one here:

as Excel itself can read the generated SYLK Files from OOo this not a
bug from OOo but one from Warcraft, So please file a bug against warcraft.

Nevertheless we discovered a new possibility to enhance our SYLK
filter and will try to integrate this. So I set the flags to
Enhancement and Target OOo Later.

This may be a slight misunderstanding. OOo currently doesn't
import/export annotations (cell comments, C;A records) from/to SYLK
format, also the formula notation of relative cell references
(RC[...]) isn't supported by OOo Calc. If WarCraft relies on the
presence of those annotations and/or formulas (the formulas in this
special notation can't even be read by Excel97) then currently this is
not a viable option, but it's also not a fault of WarCraft, please try
to use another data exchange format if possible.

Another possibility would be, that WarCraft relies on the ID record to
read ID;PWXL;N;E but OOo Calc writes ID;PSCALC3, you may try to change
