Hi Dick,

I can confirm the problem you report with AOO 4.0.0.   But I then
tried with AOO 4.0.1, a newer version which should be officially
released soon.  It was able to load that XLSX file.  It was slow, but
it did fully open.  When I saved it as an ODS file, OpenOffice's
native format, subsequent opens were much faster.

I can send you the ODS version if you want.  Or you can try again with
AOO 4.0.1 once that releases.
