Description Andre Santos 2015-05-03 08:34:16 UTC
openining an excel file (2007/xls), only changing the page format to landscape, after saving it (never touching any cells), if the file is openned in excel, the cell's with "money" format, are totally wrong!

Ex: a value of  37,01$ will change to 0,037

If we set the "money" format again (in calc), then it saves the file correctly.

This works fine in version 4.2

Tested on version 4.4.2 and with the same problem.

Tested on windows Vista, 2003 server and 8.

Original File

This is the "no changes file", right from excel.
The cell that will have the problem is H2

test file xlsx

Format of cell is: # ##0,00\ "€";-# ##0,00\ "€"

I can confirm with LO 4.4.2, win7

After save is format of cell changed.

I can reproduce only if thousand separator is space (fr-FR) and not with other thousand separator (en-US)
