Hi Dave,

I've opened one (, feel free to add your precious explanations :-)

As you say opening the xlsx file in LO does produce the green splash caused by multiple renderings of an embedded image. I ran two alternative tests: 1. Opened the file in Excel 2013 and (as expected) it displayed correctly. However, there was no visual evidence of the image. I then extracted the contents of the file and removed the image. When I reopened the modified file in Excel the file still displayed correctly, which suggests that the image served no useful purpose, or Excel somehow auto-adjusted to the image's removal. When I reopened the modified file in LO the green splash was gone, but LO interpreted the file structure by replacing what was the image with multiple place holders. While the green splash is inconvenient and annoying, my main concern would be that, with or without the embedded image, LO did not render the drop-down list boxes in column B. 2. Opened a fresh copy of the file in Excel 2013 and saved it in ods format. Opened the ods file (which still contained the embedded image) in LO and the file displayed correctly, including the the drop-down list boxes in column B. I don't know what, if any, purpose the embedded image serves, but it seems like it would be worthwhile filing a bug report. If it would be of any assistance, I can send you repaired copies of the file in both ods & xlsx format. Dave
