The file that cause incompatibility

I have had a file which I created using a python program with the "xlwt" module. I write the content in a "test.xls" file and the open it with Microsoft Excel and everything works fine. But when I open it using Liboffice Calc, some columns are missing.
    I don't know the format of a Excel file. Maybe you guys can look into the attachment I provide and find the incompatibility problem.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.4.1 or 5.3.6

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.

4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
