Description bsector 2003-09-11 12:09:54 UTC
To more increase the number of spread sheets for 512 or and the line number 
for 64000 or more. 

Some spread sheets that links with other spread sheets has finish being harmed 
for this limit.
Comment 1 frank 2003-09-11 13:59:12 UTC

this is a double to 1633

Therefore I set the flags.

Hi Eike,

as discussed.

Comment 5 ooo 2003-09-12 10:12:52 UTC
I take it as a "reminder" and proxy issue.
Comment 6 ironiusn 2003-09-25 15:29:16 UTC
I was stuck recently, when I couldn't import a big csv file with 80000
records. I suspect row or column number increase would require change in 
cell numbering arythmetics, but I guess many would appreciate such a
change. Maybe I will have to plunge into source code.

I second the request to break the 256 sheet limit. Calc is far behind the
competition in this point.

Maybe this issue should concentrate on the sheet limit; the column limit is
discussed in another issue.

Comment 11 merschmann 2009-02-23 12:58:57 UTC
As described in issue 52528 the limited number of sheets limits the number of
links to external files when importing from Excel.

Are there any efforts since then?
Comment 12 ooo 2009-02-23 13:08:17 UTC
@volkerme: handling of external references changed and doesn't affect the number
of available sheets anymore, see
Comment 13 denkster 2011-02-01 19:48:50 UTC
Calc should hbe able to handle at least the amount of rows (1 million+), columns
(16 000+) and worksheets (16000+) as QuattroPro 10-12-13-14-15!
Comment 14 Marcus 2017-05-20 11:13:07 UTC
