Excel Calender (XLS) + 2 Screenshots (Calc and Excel)


I've found an useful Excel calender (.xls) and wanted it to open in LibreOffice Calc, but there are lots of problems with Excel formulas.

I compared it to Excel 2010 and made screenshots of this spreadsheet opened in both programs (see attachment). I've clicked on "Jahre" at the top of the spreadsheet after opening it.

The XLS spreadsheet (also in attachment) was part of a freely available archive downloaded from URL:

I tested this calendar with Version: Build ID: 61d1f8f237bb45901de9c8016ea48fab1c3570d @ Win 7 x64. I can't confirm the behavior of the bug, because there are so much macros in it, so that I am unable to get into the right view.
I hope you agree to my changes. Feel free to leave a comment.

BTW: Why are you not using a calendar made for LibreOffice? You may find some in the LibreOffice template center: http://templates.libreoffice.org/template-center?sort_on=positive_ratings&SearchableText=calendar

Very helpful. You won't get my private Excel macro spreadsheets.

I better use Softmaker Planmaker for spreadsheets. LibreOffice Calc is still quite buggy importing Excel files.

Setting to INVALID.

The excel file only makes sense when processed using VBS macros. If macros are not provided there's really nothing we can do. Sorry. Not meaning to be rude, just honest and if you want this fixed, we'd need the macros. In that case just re-open.
