Problem opening and saving files with 4.1.6 on Mac???

See 4.1.6 Cannot open .xls where it is reported that spreadsheet files cannot be opened with 4.1.6 on Mac, and where a file cannot be saved as .xls.

Test with these three files.

Spreadsheet Test AOo.ods
A .ods file
(9.48 KiB) Downloaded 14 times

Spreadsheet Test XL.xls
A .xls file
(25 KiB) Downloaded 14 times

Spreadsheet Test XL.xlsx
A .xlsx file
(8.41 KiB) Downloaded 13 times
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
