I need some help with libreoffice version on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It worked perfectly well yesterday and today it doesn't. I have completely uninstalled it an reinstalled. Everything works except for calc. When I try to open a spreadsheet/excel file it greys out and freezes. At the bottom left hand corner it says "calculating". It just hangs there. Now when I run Writer or Impress, they work fine, but after trying to run Calc, they too do not open.I have to re-boot to get Write and Impress to work.

LibreOffice was installed via the Synaptic Package Manager

Regards and thanks in advance for any help

Check with opening a known CSV or ODS file, found excel spreadsheets size appears may create issues when Calc attempts to convert them.
