I have a msoffice template doc file that I use to fill in for my expenses, it loads in libreoffice writer ok but when I go to enter the date in the date column the cursor flahes and moves when I type in the date but nothing appears in the column. I can tab to the next column and enter data ok, it's just the date column that is not showing an entry. I have knocked the security down to zero as it said there was a macro it didn't like. I'm using libreoffice with Linux Mint 19.3. Any and all help would be appreciated as I don't want to install windows just to file out my expenses.I have attached the document C:\fakepath\Travel+Expenses+Claim+Form Original.doc

I cannot see any macro in the file provided. What I can see is, that the first cell of the date column contains white bold text and thus nothing is visible, if you type into the cell.

See modified version: C:\fakepath\Travel-Expenses-Claim-Modified.doc

Hope that helps.
