- Open a new sheet

- Create and save a basic macro 

- File -> save as
- Select a name and save in Excel 97/2000/XP/2003

There are no problems saving on ODS format.

XLS can't store basic macros. There is no way to implement your feature request.

There is a feature request for storing VBA macros in XLS(X) but this is a totally different story and then only a feature request and not a bug.
