Excel recognizes an autofilter region by the presence of the <autoFilter/> entry in the individual worksheet XML.
LO appears to check for the defined name _xlnm._FilterDatabase . While files generated by Excel do include the defined name, Excel only requires the autoFilter tag.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open attached files
LibreOffice only recognizes autofilter in af_with_tag_and_name.xlsx
LibreOffice recognizes autofilter in af_with_tag_and_name.xlsx and af_with_tag.xlsx
User Profile Reset: Yes
There are 3 attached files:
- af_with_tag_and_name.xlsx was generated in Excel 2016, then edited using zip.vim to reformat the xml in the workbook entry `xl/workbook.xml` and `xl/worksheets/sheet1.xml`
- af_with_tag.xlsx was generated by removing the definedNames block of the workbook XML of af_with_tag_and_name.xlsx
- af_with_name.xlsx was generated by removing the autoFilter tag from the worksheet XML of af_with_tag_and_name.xlsx
