I have used it for years - receiving a very  large .xls file from the bank,

You can open the xls file format with Calc and then save as ods.

Calc normally opens xls files without any problems. Occasionally users
have reported problems with the newer xlsx format, personally I have not
had any problems opening either format in Calc since 3.4.0

With libreoffice calc 3.5.3 I can only save it as pdf,html,txt but not as
.ods file. The ods option has been removed from the save as menu. I know that
calc was able of doing this - so why is this change?
I do not know way the change unless someone thought using HTML as
intermediate between xls to ods was an unnecessary step.

I know that I can copy and paste the table from a browser to calc - but this is
an extremely clumsy way of doing things. Why remove something that was working
like a charm?
