Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-10-06 13:12:20 UTC
Check the attached test document. It was created in MS Excel and contains a simple pivot table. If I open it in Calc and save back to an XLSX file than MSO opens it, but when I try to refresh the pivot table it crashes.
After some testing I found out that this is because of the field called "DATA". This "DATA" name might collide with some internally used name. I would guess something like that. If I change it to "DATA1" in the source range and refesh the table, then roundtriping in Calc will not lead to this issue.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached test XLSX in Calc
2. Save it back to an XLSX file
3. Open in Excel and refresh the table (right click on pivot table -> refresh)

Actual Results:  
Excel crashes.

Expected Results:
Excel should not crash on the roundtripped document.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
