1. Open the spect.ods file, which uploaded as attachment.
2. "Ctrl + Shift + s", select "Microsoft Excel 2003 XML (.xml)" from "File Type"
drop menu in the "Save" dialogbox, them press Save button.

Program lose response. In WinXP, the program will give out a message as "OOo-dev
require a JRE to perform this task" and so on.

Save succeed.

In DEV300m37 (WinXP) save failure dose not lead to block, just give out 2 pop-up
warning message.
But in DEV300m35 (Linux) the program loses response.

Reproducible with the attached document, OOoDEV300m37 on German WinXP does not

I am having this issue as well. 

1) Inside the .ods file, hit "save as"
2) Name file
3) Choose File type as "Excel 2003 .xml"
4) Hit save
5) Pop up asks me if I want to save as a .ods or keep formatting
6) Choose Keep formatting
7) Save bar starts, then hangs
8) After a short time I get the message that Calc is not responding. 

Cannot save as to Excel 2003 format. 

To be able to save as Excel 2003 format for sharing with an Excel user. 

Thank you, 
James Decker
