Description martinbrait 2017-04-14 17:46:47 UTC
My option button values
Are never backed up with the same
Result, once the file
Is converted from ods to xls.

Look at myvalues ​​stored in the calculation page, [C6: C12]
Once the file is converted to xls
The result has nothing to do with the original file in ods format.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make an ods file and use controls 
2. report values from these controls to a cell
3. save to ods format
3. save again to xls format

Actual Results:  
I see that certain values are missing in the xls file, and I really don't understand why !

Expected Results:
certain values are erased in the xls version

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I didn't try to reset my profile.

I can't reproduce your issue with:
Version: Build ID: 8a35821d8636a03b8bf4e15b48f59794652c68ba

But this an old version, maybe you can try with a new one.

Or please try resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues.
Usually it's enough renaming/deleting the file "user/registrymodifications.xcu",  it affects all the options in Menu/Tools/Options, and the files "user/basic/dialog.xlc" and "scrip.xlc" are overwritten, additionally custom colors in "user/config/standard.soc" are lost.

I can see now, but it happens also with xlsx.
Versión: (x64)
Id. de compilación: 6cd4f1ef626f15116896b1d8e1398b56da0d0ee1
Subproc. CPU: 4; SO: Windows 6.19; Repr. de IU: predet.; Motor de trazado: HarfBuzz; 
Configuración regional: es-ES (es_ES); Calc: group

It works with native file format.

Hello MiguelAnge,

I really want to use any of those file formats ots,ods,xls. My files should be converted at any time.

Then I can do treatment for those files, with OpenOffice, LibreOffice And MicrosoftOffice whatever. I'm free to choose my application, and i am not afraid about it. I will do it without a problem!

There is no other way than to wait for some developer putting their attention on this issue.

Still repro convert ods to xls format but its even more problematic for xlsx format, it loses everything. The forms, buttons and text are gone.
Even with AOO the same problem for converting to xls format.
