Unfortunately not, and since I'm not in the IT department I usually don't get the call on those things. It's more of a minor annoyance than a bug (as long as I use Window Explorer file association it's fine), I just wanted to see if this happened to other people. Also the file is actually being generated by a component, dhtmlxgrid (, again prior version) so the XLS file may not be completely clean.

If Libreoffice is set to open XLS files, it should just open the file
directly in XLS format, no import required.

If I try to directly open that file in LibreOffice Calc, however,
it kicks it out to Writer. Is this a known bug in LO?
Just noticed your subject says version 4.1? Is that a typo? 4.1 is over
3 years old.

If that is the version you're using, upgrade, and come back if you're
still having problems.

Otherwise, don't expect much (if any) help for such an old version.
