When opening the same file in Excel, excel will load for 5-10s, however, on LibreOffice Calc, the file takes around 20s to open (for the progress bar to finish) then freezes for another 20s
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a large csv file
2. Open it in Calc using Text for every column (instead of standard)
Calc loads for a long time and may become unresponsive for a while, even after the progress bar finished
Loaded the document after to bottom progress bar had finished instead of freezing for another 20s

So please attach a csv file where to test the slowness on opening it.

It should compress pretty well, if you zip it.

Perhaps some option in the import box gives the delay.

File that I get the issue with
Sorry for not responding, I completely forgot about it. With the updated version of libreoffice it's better, but still maybe twice as slow as excel is for me (takes 10 seconds to load instead of 5).
It's been so long that I don't have the original file anymore, but I have another large CSV that opens faster in excel
Let's close as it is not "much slower" anymore. Also, we don't know the exact formatting that is being applied in LibO vs. Excel.

Fair enough. It's at a usable speed now.
