Description w08833 2014-04-21 23:24:47 UTC
Created attachment 97715 [details]
spreadsheet which causes Excel to crash.

attached Libre spreadsheet has multiple Charts.  I have been unable to read it with any version of Excel using any file format.  Excel crashes while attempting to open the Libre spreadsheet.

no compatibility issues that I know of with Open Office.
Comment 1 tommy27 2014-05-10 05:22:41 UTC
I reproduce the crash under Win7x64 using Excel Viewer.

@w08833
is just that test file that causes crash or any LibO .xls chart has the same effect?
Comment 2 w08833 2014-05-14 17:39:05 UTC
this is the spreadsheet that I use most frequently.

Issue not reproduced when document saved as XLSX

Problem still present in

Version: 5.0.0.5

Locale: es-ES (es_ES)

on Windows 7 (64-bit)

However, it only happens when we save the document as .XLS, not as .XLSX

Yes, if you take attachment 97715 [details] and again save as .xls with LO master 5.3+ it crashes MSO. 
But this bug is not correctly reported and confirmed because it doesn't says how the test document was created in the first place, is it .xls saved from .ods or directly created as .xls, and with which LO version. 
The reporter should also try to create a minimal test version.
