Subject: Cell value read as GENERAL in LibreOffice-created XLSX
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1022b
I found that XLSX spreadsheets created in LibreOffice 4.4 aren't parsed correctly by Spreadsheet::XLSX. The formatted value is reported as GENERAL instead of the correct value. Microsoft Excel doesn't seem to have any problem opening the file. Also, if I just open the file in Excel and Save As (without changing anything), the new file is parsed correctly. Here's an example. I created libreoffice.xlsx in LibreOffice The first column uses the default format to store 1. The second column uses an explicit integer format to store 2. The third column uses a two-decimal-place format to store 3.4. Then I dump the file with this code: use Spreadsheet::XLSX (); my $excel = Spreadsheet::XLSX->new(shift); my $sheet = $excel->worksheet(0); for my $col (0 .. 2) { printf "%d: %s\n", $col, $sheet->get_cell(1,$col)->value; } For libreoffice.xlsx, this prints: 0: GENERAL 1: 2 2: 3.40 After loading & saving in Excel, libreoffice-excel.xlsx prints: 0: 1 1: 2 2: 3.40 which is correct.
