Issue ID: 127171
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Calc deleting data on spreadsheets
           Product: Calc
           Version: 4.1.3
          Hardware: Mac
                OS: OS X 10.11
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: P5 (lowest)
         Component: save-export

I installed the latest version of Open Office yesterday on a Mac running OS
10.11, 16 gig Ram, 1 TB HD. When Open Office (hereafter OO) opens a spread
sheet, and you save changes, it erases all the data. When a text document is
opened, and you save it, it no longer recognises the file, nor does MS office
or Pages. I assume there is a bug in the program, or the main site where I
downloaded the new program (I now rue that day). So:

A. Has anyone reported this problem?

B. Is there anyway to “fix” it?

C. Do you have an idea where this bug would be`? AVG says there are no nasties
on the computer, but I recognise it does not catch everything, Disk utility
says all is well with the hard disk, as does TechTool Pro  If I uninstall OO, I
need to know where the “hidden” files are, so I can get rid of everything, and
then try OO version 3 again, as 4 is not a place I want to visit again, so I
can save the file in another format another office suite can read, and I can
say farewell.

Fortunately I am paranoid about backups (keeping 2 backups of all important
files) but the main spreadsheet has (had, lol) six years of data, and that is
now gone in the hole, as is one of the backups. Unfortunately,that sheet is
saved in OO format so I am at a loss as to how to recover the data from my
remaining backup without using open office,
