I need to do the following-
1) Data is organized in single column A
2) I have to select some rows at a time copy them and transpose then in column B in order to split that in columns. I have created a macro for this. At a time, i select about 15 rows. The macro execution takes about 2 seconds to execute completely. Same file, same macro on Excel, its instantaneous.
Details of the File as follows - Note- the file has been created in Excel saved in XLS format. Converting it to XLSX makes no difference.
1) File size ~55MB
2) Number of sheets - ~30
3) Rows per sheet - ~10500
Saving the file in Calc takes > 5 minutes. Till the files is completely saved, cannot use any other LibreOffice tool. Saving the same file on Excel is within a minute at the most. Strange thing observed, the macro execution becomes a little faster when I am charging the laptop.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Macro execution takes about 2-3 seconds to completely execute.
2) File saving and loading takes mores that 5 minutes.
1) Should be instantaneous.
2) Shouldnt take more than a minute.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 126.96.36.199 release
Is it possible to upload that file to an external upload-server (Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, ...)?

Thanks in advance,
Would it be ok if i attach i the bug itself.

@abhimj: please do not reply the email you get, but browse to this bug (link https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61837) and leave a comment there.

I'm afraid that isn't possible. There is a file size limit, so a 50 MB file would be rejected. If you can send that big documents by email to me, I can do it for you.
OK, I have the file on my google drive account.
Can you please let me know with whom can i share it with?
I have shared the file on email@example.com.
File name is English_611-900.xls

Saw that, thanks for sharing.
Is it possible to post the link in this bug so everyone who looks at this bug can download it immediately? See http://support.google.com/drive/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=37579 how you can do this.
If this is not possible (as far I can see there is no confidential information in it, but if you don't want to we would not oblige you something), I can provide this document to all well known QA-volunteers and developers.
Okay, back to the bug report:
I can't reproduce this behavior.
What I noticed:
* Open document (about 30 seconds)
* It took another 30 seconds till all images where loaded
* Scrolling seems not that fluently
* File > Save As and save it with another name took me also 30 seconds
Tested using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice 188.8.131.52; intel core i5, 4GB memory, ...
So the only thing I can confirm is that scrolling through this document isn't that fluent.
@Joel: you mind taking a look at this one?
Can you try the following -
Record a macro with the following steps -
1) Select some rows (i select beginning from the row whihc has the book name author name, down 10-15 rows.)
3) Paste special-Transpose in a row in the column B.
4) Assign a key board shortuct and execute the macro.
I use this on Windows 7 64 bit machine.
@abhimj - please don't add irrelevant requests to the comments. We try to keep FDO clean and to do that any comments should be relevant to this bug - recording a macro and all of that seems well outside the scope
My mistake - I didn't read the report correctly :) Ignore my last comment, reading over everything again (again my apologies, early in the morning here!)
Sorry for the spam but I'm really unclear about this bug. I can open the file fine, saving it takes a minute or so (not sure compared to excel). I don't see a macro at all on my side when I download the file, furthermore, if you created the macro in Excel I'm shocked that it would even work in Spreadsheet as we don't offer cross compatibility.
Can you explain a bit more, sorry for the confusion just not sure what the true issue is. According to the title you say load and save takes forever, but then in bug explanation you talk about macros (which again, I don't see macro on the sheet). If it's about loading/saving the file, loading the file takes less than a minute, saving the file also takes less than a minute
Sorry my mistake, i should have summarized the exact problems more clearly.
I am facing two problems -
1) Load and save the file takes > 5 minutes. Same when Calc auto saves the changes for recovery.
- On Excel, it gets loaded and saved within a minute.
2) Macro execution (with the steps that i earlier mentioned) takes about 3-5 seconds.
- On Excel, its instantaneous.
- The file that is uploaded on the drive doesnt contain the macro. I created it seperately in Calc and Excel with the same steps. Thats why i requested to tyr creating the macro with the steps.
The reason for the slow execution of macro could be as following as mentioend by @Joren
>>So the only thing I can confirm is that scrolling through this document isn't that fluent.
Because thats exactly what i did while recording the macro - Shift+down arrow key to select the required rows. Now that itself is slow.
But as i have menitioned in the original description, the scrolling or the selection part speeds up by about 10-20% when i am charging my laptop. Thats really weird, but thats what is happenning.
Unfortunately cannot try on Linux. dont have one.
I am ok with the slow macro execution actually, but the load/save times is a real pain.
I have updated the bug with the link to the file.
What are your system specs? I definitely don't see 5 minute loads/saves.
Tested on 2nd machine and indeed - very slow.
Tested machine: Windows 7 running LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 release, i3, 1.8 ghz, 4 GB RAM
For me opening file took 3 minutes 50 seconds.
Makes document almost unusable.
Normal (no loss of data, just very slow)
Medium (makes document first use very tedious, need to turn off auto save to prevent performance issues)
The reason why I left this as Medium is that it's a very specific file that I'm not sure if Spreadsheet is being used as it's intended to be used. There may be room for using database here instead, 30 sheets + 10500 rows, 50 megs - usually a good sign that database should be used but that's just my opinion
Saved as ODS it drops down load time to about 45 seconds.
Exact machine specs on which I have tried this -
Processor - i3-2350M CPU @2.30GHz quad.
RAM - 3GB.
OS - Windows 7 64 bit.
Model - Inspiron N5110
Tried with saving it as ODS. The save/load time does reduce drastically, scrolling improves just only a bit though (which contributes to the overall macro execution time as I had explained earlier).
Besides, I would like to keep it to xls(or xlsx format) because I have to share that file with others who user Excel.
Any thoughts about why would it seem to be faster when the laptop is charging?
macro issue should be reported separately :) 1 bug report = 1 bug :)
for the charging thing - no that's probably the most interesting thing I've heard. I wonder if it can be quantified....maybe your CPU works a bit faster when 100% charged or on AC... no clue really
>>macro issue should be reported separately :) 1 bug report = 1 bug :)
opened a new bug - Bug 62087 - Performance:Very slow scrolling.
Theres no problem with the macro execution as such, the scrolling is slow which affects the macro execution time.
Some info which may be useful in improving SAVE performance.
I just started with LibreOffice 3.6.6 - moving from Excel 97.
Am using Windows XP. 2GiB RAM. Pentium M.
Two xls docs open in LibreOffice - one has 18 sheets / variable amounts of data, the other 150 sheets lots of data on some pages.
I made a small change to one cell in one sheet in each file - added some text. I then clicked save ( as .xls ) ;
The 18 sheet file wasn't too bad.
The 150 sheet file takes quite a while.
I suspect it is looking at and possibly saving all sheets - which is not necessary as they haven't changed. There is not much data in the one page that has changed ( and it's all text with no calcs / links etc ) so a long save isn't justified.
Confirmation of behaviour would allow workarounds / avoidance while awaiting fix.

a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
