Test document.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open attached file with Libreoffice Calc.
2. Save it as is.
3. Open it in Excel.

Expected result:
Button is there.

Actual result:
There is no button. It has dissapeared.

This problem doesn't exist in Libre 4.4, only versions after that.
I don't want the script to work in Libreoffice as it was written for Excel.
I just don't want the button to dissapear.

I can reproduce with 5.1.4 - after saving in XLS format and reopening the button is visible in LO but not in Excel 2013.

I'm not sure if bisect is correct - in this commit is file broken in excel, so I marked it like "bad". Likely repaired in follow-up commits, now excel doesn't warn the file is broken. Markus, can this bug be related to your work on VBA export? Thanks

handle different callers for vba export code
This now integrates it correctly with the XLS code, the XLSX one
requires a bit more work to copy the stream to the OOXML file.

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.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
