OpenOffice will not open files saved as .xlsx

    Spread.SaveExcel with the ExcelSaveFlags set to UseOOXMLFormat will not open in OpenOffice.  

     I am on the latest version 7 of Spread.

    I have also tested it using the live demo (Excel I/O section) and the same issue occurs.

     We have customers that do not have Excel and need to open the file in OpenOffice.  

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Hello,

    We are able to replicate the issue and have escalated the same to our concerned team for the fix. Bug number for the same is #99934110.

    We will update you once it will be fixed. However, in the meantime you can save Spread into xlsx file without any ExcelSaveFlags as given below and it will open in OpenOffice. 

      fpSpread1.SaveExcel(@"xlsxWithoutExcelSaveFlags.xlsx"); 

    Thanks,
