I’m trying to open an Excel XLS spreadsheet containing XML code with LibreOffice version:
Version: 22.214.171.124 (x64) / LibreOffice Community Build ID: 85f04e9f809797b8199d13c421bd8a2b025d52b5 CPU threads: 2; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19042; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win Locale: it-IT (it_IT); UI: it-IT Calc: threaded
But get the same “General Error. General input/output error.” both on Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux 20.04 (I also tried with LibreOffice 7.0.6, with the same results), while no error or warnig is given using MS Excel.
The example XLS example.xls contains XML code and is the output of Microsoft Reporting Services, on which I have no control.
I already tried to open it using “Microsoft Excel 2003 XML” file type, as suggested in other threads (es. link, but to no avail.
Is there a different file type or different strategy I should try?
Thank you for your support!
