Description kpalagin 2007-02-07 11:15:10 UTC
Whenever I try to save the file from 
(password - "OpenOffice" without quotes) I get 
"General input/output error".

Repro steps:
1. Open the file.
2. Click File, Save As and type different name. After pause Calc displays 
error message.

IMO, this might qualify as release blocker.
Happens with 2.2 m1 and m5 on WinXP. M6 is not tested yet.

Hi Niklas,

please have a look at this one. Progressbar finishes and the toolbars should
become active again but got an General IO Error instead.

Do you still have the Excel file from which this was imported (created with a
Russian language Excel, I assume)?
Comment 4 kpalagin 2007-02-07 19:27:19 UTC
it takes aprox 4 minutes to to open on Athlon 2600+ (which could be an issue 
by itself):;topic=3048.0;attach=2114

Unpacked version -
password - "openOffice" (without quotes).
Comment 6 niklas.nebel 2007-02-08 15:45:27 UTC
The Excel file contains Basic module names like "ЛиÑÑ‚1", which are imported that
way into our Basic. Our Basic uses the module names as stream names in the file,
where non-ASCII characters aren't allowed. With these names, loading and saving
the ods file leads to invalid UTF8 sequences in manifest.xml, which causes an
exception when saving.
Comment 7 kpalagin 2007-02-08 18:05:10 UTC
thanks for such quick response!
Two questions:
1. How come it is possible to generate .ods initially? (I only get failure on 
second save).
2. Is there a possibility of improving load and save times of original .xls? 
That is, if I file an issue for that, will it be addressed?

I only can open the document with AOO 2.0.2, all other versions fail to open.

Also impossible to open with LibO 4.2.

This is a "problem with 1 single document in the world" issue with a document what can't be opened any longer with AOO, what means "WONTFIX".
