Comment 3 Pavel 2013-03-12 03:55:29 UTC
Libre Office on Windows x64
Java 1.7u17

Still input/output error when opening this xls-xml document
Comment 4 retired 2013-09-23 08:14:38 UTC
Document opens fine on OS X 10.8.5, LO

Also Ubuntu 13.04, LO works great.

Pavel could you check the latest LO 4.1.x release and see if that works for you? Which windows are you on? Maybe windows only? And you might want to update your Java.
Comment 5 retired 2013-09-23 08:18:41 UTC
Setting to WORKSFORME. Please re-open if you still run into the input/output error.

@Pavel: 'Version' field is for the earliest version on which a bug is reproducible, so please don't change it to a later version. See
