How do you open your table? Start LibreOffice and then open the file from LO?

I cannot open any spreadsheets from within Calc. Calc will also not open a spreadsheet that it has just recently created. Calc just freezes up and eventually I have to cancel out of it. --- However i can go into "Files," click any spreadsheet and those will open successfully in Calc. --- It is just within Calc that the spreadsheets cannot be opened. By the way, all of the spreadsheets are .xlsx files.

In Calc, I click the down arrow by "Open" files icon at the top left of the screen. I choose a spreadsheet from the list, an .xlsx file, but it never displays, the program just hang up.

Eventually I get the message, "LibreOffice Calc is not responding" Then I can choose "Force Quit" or "Wait"

You can try to reset your user profile. It is described here: otherwise you can also try to download and reinstall LibreOffice from the original source.Original source from here:

Ok. I reinstalled Libre office from the software center icon and the Calc problem is fixed. Thanks.
