Hi @Andres, What version of LibreOffice are you using, and on what OS? We can try to replicate the creation of the .ODB file.

I believe you cannot avoid the ODB file, because it is the only way LibreOffice has to contains a data source (independently if the source is a local spreadsheet or a corporate database connection.
