When opening an XLSX in Calc with embedded objects, those objects do not get imported properly. There's a rectangle showing the position where the object is but you cannot open it (LibreOffice 22.214.171.124) or a colored icon of that object with a rectangle is visible (LibreOffice 4.1).
Expected behaviour: Double-clicking on that object will open it.
Looking inside the .ODS, objects have not been stored..

Same results as you when trying to open embedded-objects.xlsx. But with .xls format, this work. Can you try that way?
Have a nice day,
When trying this with .XLS, LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 crashes on my system;
LibreOffice 4.1 opens the file write-protected (pretending it is opened
somewhere and just shows the icons. The embedded objects themselves are not present.
I forgot to tell I produced .xls with MS Starter Kit and it didn't claim anything about write protecting.
Since I reproduce images and not linked objects with LO 188.8.131.52 & Windows 7 Home Premium, I set status to NEW.
Have a nice day,

Setting priority to highest as this is a MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.

Confirm that this bug is still present in LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124
*** Bug 128162 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The object itself will produce a string of formulas
' =EMBED("package shell object", "") '
fro MSO excel, then the object in calc does not have such a formula, affecting the problem of incompatibility from excel objects
I guess it is not present in LibreOffice 7.1.0
Someone please confirm..
still present in LibreOffice 7.1.0 alpha 1
- object icons are shown but none of the objects can be opened;
they are also not present in the ods when saving.

Indeed, quite unexpected!
+ it works too with doc and docx as you indicated in another comment
so why only xlsx concerned ?
Eike: any idea what might be the pb here or where to search?
I mean if it works with xls, perhaps it doesn't need much to make it work on xlsx?
