Description billnsuzy 2014-06-28 17:35:45 UTC
Open .xls file
Create a cell link to external .xls file. Looks good
Save as .xls file
Open file, accept "update links?". Receive this message
"external file could not be loaded"

Upon looking at the cell reference for linking, I see that the Path for linking has been changed. Path now shows multiple location (location is repeated) and name of file, but has deleted the sheet name and the cell location. This error occurred with Mac Snow Leopard and with Maverick. Using Libreoffice Occurred in earlier version also.

This is actually not a bug and it has been described over and over again by Kohei (one of our lead spreadsheet developers). Marking this as a duplicate of bug 48463 - please read the comment 17 on that bug
