2013-04-02 17:49:57 +0100 asked a question Is there a practical limit to spreadsheet size for conversion?

I am seeing a very large number of large spreadsheet that fail to save-as XLSX in Win7. The converter either hangs or crashes or it appears to complete but the XLSX object is corrupted and useless. Moreover, why is it XLSX can only opened as read-only and the name of the object is changed in the Calc window to something like X0000001.ods

2013-04-01 23:23:23 +0100 asked a question SQL Query Wizard in Base creates nothing but errors

I am trying to use a fairly simple albeit large-ish (9,600 - 14,000 rows, 2 dozen columns, total object size ~3MB) spreadsheet in Base. Anything I plug into the query wizard, literally anything, any fields, any sort or search or condition reports back SQL query syntax error for every single field selected. Doesn't say what's wrong only that every single thing is wrong. The contents of every row are generally text or numerics, one column is a logical test for true-false with 99% of the results in that column being false. Whether I use one column or all of them or anything in between I get the same universal and complete comprehensive failure. Note this is an attempt to connect TO a spreadsheet - and NOT to use a Base file as the input into a spreadsheet. These are spreadsheets in either XLS format or ODS format. Either case there's only one tab in the spreadsheet.

I have a page doc file that's a table. NONE of the text in it is visible in Libre nor is it visible in Libre any document format at all. It is only visible in MS Office (2007) where it appears fine and normal. Converting the document, in either 2007 or Libre to any other format does not create a document where anything can be displayed in Libre at all. All I see are the table borders.
