Description Christopher M. Penalver 2012-04-14 18:15:45 UTC
Downstream bug may be found at:

1) lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release:	12.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-calc
  Installed: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Calc via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget -c https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/897101/+attachment/2610867/+files/WW%20stan%20na%2021.11.2011%20%282%29.xls -O testcase.xls && localc -nologo testcase.xls

File -> Print Preview is it looks like the Excel screenshot https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/897101/+attachment/2610889/+files/Excel.jpg .

4) What happens instead is it looks different in LO screenshot https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/897101/+attachment/2610890/+files/Libreoffice.png .

WORKAROUND: Highlight Q340 through A1 -> File -> Print -> click radio button "Selected cells".

Stil in LO 6.4 I see all content on a single page in Preview. Also in LO 3.3. Windows. Could be inherited from OO 3.3.
Excel printout is from A1 to R340. So it's 4 pages.
Calc printout is up to column IV so all is a single page. 
Reason is row 3 that's all merged up to the end in IV.
