A friend of mine has LibreOffice 4.2.1 installed alongside MS Office 2010 Starter Edition on his Windows 7 system. He received an Excel spreadsheet via email which he can open just fine in both Excel and Calc. The problem is when he opens the file in Calc, it opens with the page zoom set to 60%. When he opens the file in Excel, it opens with page zoom set to 100%. Because of this, he didn't think he could edit the file in Calc since he couldn't read the info. He wasn't aware of the page zoom capability of either application. :)

Experimentation suggests that the zoom factor in use when the document file is saved is stored in the document, with the effect that it can be reopened with the same appearance. This is the case whether the document is saved as .xls, .xlsx, or .ods. Calc appears to respect the saved zoom factor in each case, but Microsoft Office 2010, whilst it respects the zoom saved in .xls and .xlsx files, ignores that in .ods files - even when saved by Microsoft Office itself.

Any ideas as to why Calc would open the spreadsheet with a page zoom of 60%?

Presumably it was being displayed at a zoom factor of 60% and was saved as an .ods file.

I trust this helps.
