Where are you saving the file, in your system, in a network drive, in the cloud?

Which are the timezone settings of your system? Is your BIOS clock using UTC or local time? Does the same issue appear with files from other applications?

Document save time indicated on the W7 client disk is according the W7 client time for both MSoffice as for LibreOffice. Document save time indicated on the Linux server disk is according the W7 client time for MSoffice but 2 hours ahead in LibreOffice.

Sorry, i can't reproduce this. Saving files from LO under Win7 to a novell share, works fine, as well as copying a LO file from Win7 to Linux. So i assume it's a server misconfiguration, not a LO issue. If you don't agree, please add complete info to enable others to reproduce this.
