I try to open the .xls as a spreadsheet. After opening the file, I get the ASCII
import options dialog, and then the file is opened in Writer instead of Calc.

The attachment contains the test .xls file that does not open properly. Also
included is the program that made the .xls in both source and binary formats.
The source was originally downloaded from the site and can be
compiled in Power Basic for Windows 8.0.

The .xls opens properly in Excel 2003.
