Calc does recognize charts in XLS files.

The only difference is that you need to double-click within the chart area to switch to Edit mode.

If you actually plan to switch to LibreOffice, I suggest that you save your modified file in ODS format (LibreOffice's native file format)

Saving in ODS is a win-win option: it makes sure that the changes you made are preserved as you see them (saving back to XLS causes the file to be converted to XLS again) and that your information is no longer in a proprietary format (your information is Free from any company's lock in)

Hope this helps ;)
