When saving document all tabs were deleted except the main tab. 3/4 of the data on that tab was deleted as well. original document in .csv format - saved back to that format.

CSV is a plain text table data; and it is by design unable to hold more than one sheet. If you save multiple-sheet spreadsheet to it, it will loose all but first - that's normal.

Also it's unable to save formatting; graphical data (including charts); and many more. Use ODS to have full support of all LibreOffice Calc features.

A bit of correction - saving multiple-sheet spreadsheet to CSV will save currently active sheet, not the first one and will generate warning

Warning saving the document -filename-: Only the active sheet was saved.
