A customer of mine reported this problem to me on Windows 7/64b with LO

When she opens some XLSX file (which contains from a few to a lot of
sheets), sometimes one of the sheet is blank (i.e. all the cells are
empty as if it was a new sheet).
This is very critical, since if she does not realize this, that data is
lost forever when she saves.

Closing the document and reopening it usually does not show the problem

I searched bug tracking but found no issue which seems to be like this
(but perhaps I don't know what to look for exactly).

Any suggestion?

 bye & Thanks

4 possible solutions:

1) Send a PDF if the receipient is supposed to read and print the
document. PDF can be displayed and printed true to the original on all
devices including cell phones, ebook readers, all PC platforms.

2) Send LibreOffice's native file format if the receipient has MS Office
10 or later. Recent version of MS Office can read and edit our files.
And there is no reason why one should not install an ODF suite in
parallel to MS Office.

3) Send the old xls file format which still provides the best possible
(though not perfect) interoperability when editing documents with both
MS Office and LibreOffice.

4) OOXML (docx, pptx, xlsx) is by far the worst choice as outlined by
Sig. Vignoli.

5) Sometimes a text file (csv) is all it takes to transfer some raw data
to someone.
