Description Óvári 2015-09-05 22:53:30 UTC
When LibreOffice Calc opens an Excel 97-2003, it would be beneficial if the maximum number of rows and columns are 65536 and IV respectively.

This would assist files to be saved without any data loss.

When an Excel 97-2003 file is opened, the window's title could show something like:
Untitled 1 [Excel 97-2003 Compatibility Mode] - LibreOffice Calc

If the file is saved in ODF format, then the maximum number of rows and columns would then be increased.

Thank you.

Discussed with devs on IRC and they suggested that this should fall under the category of improving warning messages in general.
