ramanal,
I see certain differences in the files but I have no idea how you prepared 
those files.
Please provide detailed repro steps.

I can confirm that Calc 2.2 produces SYLK file that is different from Excel 
2003.

ramanal,
please elaborate what specifically your Unix app does not like in file 
produced by Calc.
Thanks.

The Unix application only inform that the sylk file has no data. Nothing more.

Hi Daniel,

seems to be yours.

Adjust target as needed.
