same problem for me...Fedora 21 and LO4.4.1

However, LO4.2.0.4 on XP manages to open the file with no problems. I don't know whether 4.2 will perform the same feat on Linux.

If I save with on XP I can open with 4.4.1 on Fedora. With the extension unchanged.

A bit of a convoluted answer but a few options anyway :)

and open up the file attached in LibreOffice please?Also if someone could
let me know what I need to do to trouble shoot that would be great.PS I can
open some .xls files, just not this (or a few others) so it might be
something *in* the file. A workaround rather than solution would also
suffice for my purposes.
