Hi!  A friend of mine sent me an Excel 365 spreadsheet to get my help to
add a formula.  The spreadsheet is "simple", in that it had about 90
rows of data, with only one column being a numeric value.  Everything
else was plain text.  I added the formula (to sum the numbers in the one
numeric column) and when I saved the file, in XLSX format, I noticed the
file size was smaller.

Here is what I found:

Original file: 22kb

Calc 6.4.6 on Ubuntu 20.04:  16kb

Calc 5.1.6 (I think) on Mint 18.3:  9kb

Why would saving the file in Calc reduce the file size?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Tom

A pleasure to have a librarian lol, well already the previous versions
of LibreOffice converted to Ms Office format are necessarily more
dancing in size as you have noticed, I will advise you to publish the
latest version of LibreOffice

then to come back to your question I don't have a screenshot but I
send you mine which also shows a document at the base ods of 33.6 kiB
converted to xlsx format of 26.9 kiB but when you look at the content
level the xlsx version is in excel zip so compressed at the base where
the xlsx size will be smaller than the ods version in size because it
is compressed at the source.

I hope to have answered your concern if not please specify your
question to me with screenshots so that I understand well why it is
not a question.


Thanks for the reply!  I'll try LibreOffice 7 and see what happens. I
think I have it installed in a virtual Windows 10 environment I
sometimes use.
