Hello,

I have to save a file in xls-format to import it in another program.
I did it always without problems, but now (with version 1.9.109), the other program says: "syntax error".
I tried to save it via v1.1.4, but that also doesn't work. (it worked before!)

How can i solve that problem?

Could you instead save as CSV? That will only retain the data though.

Ik can only import via xls and dbf.
Dbf gives the same problem.

I tried to save as csv, close, open and save as xls or dbf, but both give the same problem.

Then i open that dbf in v1.9.109
Then i resave it as xls.
