Subject RE: AOO can't open .xlsx spreadsheet at Cornell site
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 17:13:51 GMT
I opened that 32,000+ row Cornell file as an XLSX in 15 to 20 seconds.  To
peek at it, I turn CELL WRAP on, and saw that some cells had massive amts of
text.  I'm running W/7 on a 5 or 6 year old HP.

For me it "stopped" there as well.  I took a phone call, and when I checked
again the document was open.  Check your CPU and see if it is still showing
the soffice process as active.
