Description gepeto42 2006-03-24 17:36:16 UTC
When we use Crystal Reports 8 to export XLS files, opening them in 2.0.2 shows
nothing at all.
It previously worked when we had 1.9.104 and 1.9.118.

I was able to reproduce the bug with the attached file on computers using
Windows XP and Windows 2000.

I had that file tested under 1.1.5 and it displays properly.

I cannot confirm it. The attached file opens fine in German OOo202 on German
WinXP Home.
Comment 3 gepeto42 2006-03-24 18:18:21 UTC
I have 2.0.2 in French - had someone on OOForums reproduce the same error on
2.0.2 English, Windows.
Comment 4 Regina Henschel 2006-03-24 18:53:25 UTC
I made additional tests. If I open your file directly after download, it is
indeed blank. If I touch it with Excel, that meens, open it in Excel and close
it without any changing, then it also opens fine in OOo.

This has been reported before und is fixed for OOo2.0.3, see issue 62752.

Please be careful when setting "Excel files open empty" issues to "duplicate". 
These issues can have various reasons. This issue is still extant in my latest

I know it is probably not appropriate to ask here but when can I expect 2.0.3 ?
I looked around and could not find an ETA..
