Subject: [libreoffice-users] new version of LO gives gibberish for excel file.

Hi
I just downloaded an excel file from
http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/displayafact.cfm?Docid=205
The file is the excel version of Historical Source of Revenue as Share
of GDP.
The newest, recommended version of LO opens the file as gibberish:
LibreOffice Version 3.6.5.2 (Build ID: 5b93205)

My system runs Windows 7, 64 bit, AMD quad core, 4 GB RAM.

Can anyone explain or help me fix this?

A workaround is to fetch MS' Excel Viewer, then copy from that to a
table in Writer for my document, but I would prefer to use LO for as
nearly everything as possible.

Warmest Regards
David Teague
