My apologies if this may have been posted before. I searched back in the archives about four months 
and did not find anything.
I am currently using LibreOffice and have been trying to use the xlsm files featured here I find it odd 
that some xlsm files do open but not these ones. Is there a size limit or compatibility issue with 
xlsm files on some level? If so is there a plugin that can help open them? Thank you for your time.
I was able to open all 3 xlxm files using LO or (Beta2) on a 32 bit system with 2 GB RAM. The third one contains at least one macro. I do note that LO crashed when trying to open the third file. All of these were downloaded from the LibreOffice website. I also have LO 3.5.4 from the Ubuntu repositories. It opened the first and third files; the latter took a long time to load. I guessing that there were a large number of macros that had to be disabled as the spreadsheet was loading. (I did not try to open the second file with LO from Ubuntu.) If the large number of macros in the third file are what is causing the problem, then you need to reset the security settings for your LO. (Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Security) If you know that the macros are safe to run, reset your security settings for files coming from this particular location. To do this download the files into a special folder that will only contain files for this course. Then listed the folder as a trusted source. When you do this, macros will run in any file in this folder. Just make sure files in this folder contain only macros that are safe to run.
