This issue makes our migration some hundreds users from Ms Office 2k7 to
LibO postponed.
A temporary workaround is using LibOffice Base.

I don't think a spreadsheet is designed for handling that much data,
but a database is.

OK, pls shouldn't be mixed up the function. Calc is Calc & Base is Base. Not
all Calc-Users know Base, but vice versa, all Base-Users know well Calc.
Furthermore, many enterprises depend on Excel for their everyday works with
lot of customer-info more over 65536 rows. And with Excel or Calc, the
spreadsheets can be shared to not-professional-users.

Migration from Ms Office 2k7 to LibO is a quite a complexible plan which
shouldn't be inversed. If failed & inversed to Ms Office. LibO will never
has stand in that enterpise again, although the high cost of Ms Office. I
call it One-Way-Migration.

I can surely say if we're all using Ms Office 2k3, LibO is a must choice for

Keep doing it! You have supports from communities.

Full compatibility with Ms 2k7 formats maybe make LibO more
It will never be full. That is the price we have to pay, as we can expect,
escaping from closed source softwares.

Why not try to fix this issue in version 3.3 Final but let it in
some other minor version like 3.4 , 3.5 , 3.6 ....etc..?

@Yoshida-san: It is estimated that about 30% of PCs in government section
Vietnam is using OpenOffice.
By making LibO be able to import (firstly import, not export), we have
more chance
getting the government involved.
