I want to use feature Insert - Sheet from file ...
How to make LibreOffice can detect these (24.86 % ) and (25.24 % ) as negative percentage value?

The problem is LibreOffice only recognize 25,24% instead 25.24% (so must use "," than ".")

o Insert your sheet as it is.
o In a spare column, enter:
and copy it down the column.
o Copy the resulting values and paste them back over the source values, but using Paste Special ... (or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste and ensuring that Numbers is ticked but Formulae is not.
o Format the resulting column as Percent.

The formula removes the % signs and replaces dot with comma, leaving "(24,86 )" in the case of your first example. The VALUE() function converts this text to a number, interpreting the parentheses as indicating negative values. Dividing by 100 creates the real value required - to be properly displayed when formatted as Percent.

I trust this helps.
