Hi there, I have come across an xlsx file which does open in Excel but not in my copy of ooffice (LibreOffice I have no idea how the file was generated (I assume some database export tool) It uses XML namespaces, so things like <sheet become <x:sheet The main structural difference: it supplies named columns rather than traditional A, B, AA, AB in this format <row r="1"><c ... r="COLNAME1"> Besides, every xml based format will have < > & escaped and should unescape them on reading Find attached a source diff and an example file Best regards Wolfgang Hamann
