I confirm a difference between Excel 97 and LibO on Win7 on the attached .xls file. They should be identical so there is a bug. I have no way to say if the bug is in Excel 97 or LibO for this file (status kept to UNCONFIRMED).

If I modify the height of the filled row whichever in Excel 97 or LibO, the other application then opens correctly.
