Not certain I'm understanding your question so I will answer similar
question and hope it is what you mean.

I use OpenOffice Calc and save my spreadsheets. The saved files appear to
be Excel files. I don't have Excel. Why are the files for a program I do
not have?

If the above describes your issue then the "problem" is the files are saved
in Excel format instead of Calc format. This setting can be changed each
time a file is saved and can be set to default to save as Excel in Tools >
Options > Load Save.

If this is not the problem then I do not understand your question. I have
created files in Calc for use in Excel many times. And I have created files
in Calc for use in Calc but saved them in Excel format. Also, many times.

As far as I am aware the file that is created is not licensed, it is the
program (Excel, Calc, etc.) that is licensed.
