Is it possible for you to try to export that xlsx as csv with that other spreadsheet program and then try to import to Calc. How many rows and columns that 66 MB translates to?

Try Apache OpenOffice. In my experience, AOO is more stable with big files as compared to LO.

Apache OpenOffice has a similar license.

So you keep using LibreOffice, but you will need to convert that file somewhere somehow. You just declined every suggestion we made. Maybe in a future you cold keep that data outside of office suite in some database and do logic with some programming, maybe PHP?

With 20000rows and 5 columns it's not a so big amount of data, maybe there is a pictures for every article in the file, or maybe there are direct format on the whole file out of data cells, or conditional formats.

yes, there are pictures about 70% position. Is it reason ? developers can not fix this problem?

I don't understand why Apache OpenOffice is not an option. Well, one more suggestion: try odf-converter-integrator to convert the file to ODS.

"odf-converter-integrator" cant convert it, or dont work :( I late over 1 hour, but I cant get any results. I try other online coverter, no one shold convert this file.

I would like to fix Libreoffice, because we use SAP system (1C, Russia) and this programm generate same prices.
