I've been using OO for about 10 years. The first 8 was using it in windows, and the last 2 using it in Ubuntu. Now I'm in LibreOffice. When I switched to Ubuntu, files I had saved in OO calc in windows when opened in Ubuntu had cells with data with a white background (fill) instead of showing the cell borders. They did not have a background color (fill) selected in Windows. I simply selected the group of white cells (sometimes complete columns), right clicked, selected format, then background, and then changed the fill from white to no fill. Everything was fine then. I've not used OO or LibreOffice in Windows since I switched to Ubuntu so I don't know what would happen if I opened a document I had created in Ubuntu in Windows. Maybe this will solve your problem.

I converted from openoffice 3.2.1 to libreoffice 3.3.1 (final)

I've been using oo for a long time.

When I open the calc .ods  with libreoffice, some cells
are borderless.  i.e. in some .ods file I open
parts of some rows are like that. in other .ods file
I open,  a block, let say 4x8, is like that. in some
.ods files  misc cells in various locations are like that.

I can right-click and tell it to revert back to
default formatting and that fixes the borderless issue but I will
also lose all the formattings.....

I did play with all the calc options (even openoffice legacy ,etc)

This is something I did not expect since my calc files are rather simple.

Any ideas,
