Created attachment 110352 [details]
XLS causing the problem when open

Attached XLS document does NOT contain any macro, but it contains
an empty structure for macros. There is no danger from that,
but Calc 4.3.3 (.2-final) warns and asks for enabling/disabling
macros every time the file is opened.

There was no such problem in 4.1.4 or 4.2.0 versions of LO.
There was similar problem in 4.0.0-4.1.3 - see bug 61059.

The new problem is totally different as the VBAProject is actually no longer empty after some other fixes. We import more data now which results in the old check not being enough. However I'm not sure if there is an easy fix for this problem and if we want to fix it.

Setting as NEW.

if we don't want to fix it, please set another status.
