“Excel found unreadable content in ‘filename.xlsx’. Do you want to recover the contents…” error. Doing an Open/Repair with Excel does not fix the issue. LibreOffice MS Office 2010 Windows 7

LO works best with its native format ODS. It can happen that you got errors when working in other file formats.

Best thing to do: Save .xlsx as .ods, edit in .ods format and when done "Save as" .xlsx. This should work without errors in Excel.
