We use the attached chart file for a daily cash register in our company. This file is originally from from DATEV, a German Tax program. Every month i must convert this chart to Microsoft Excel 200x for the tax adviser.
After upgrading LibO from version 3.3(?) to 3.5.4 i can't save as MS Excel. LibO freezes and eating much RAM until it crashes.
Affected Versions, i have tested: Lib0 3.5.4 Linux and Windows, Lib0 3.6.0 beta 1 Windows.
OpenOffice 3.3.0 and 3.4.0 works fine.
Way to reproduce: Open the attached file in LibO 3.5.4 and try to safe as MS Excel 200x.

file with problem save as ms excel
Now with release version 126.96.36.199 it is possible to save this file as 2003-xls. But the output-file have a size of 18 megabyte! (normally ~400kb). Version 188.8.131.52 still crash while save as 2007-xlsx.
Seems to be fixed in Version 3.6.1. I will test it some days...
Thanks for bugreport
During reading this bugreport I was inspired on creating Bug 55174
On pc Debian x86-64 with 3.6 sources updated yesterday and a brand new LO profile, I don't reproduce this pb.
Daniel: Following my test and what you told on comment3, I put it as WFM. Don't hesitate to reopen if you can still reproduce this with a newer LO version (eg 3.6.2)
