I am trying to open a calc file in Excel using Open Office calc 2.0 but it will hang half way through. The file is 1.23 mb. Any ideas ??

Until an expert with a more elegant solution appears you might try breaking the Excel file into smaller bits. If you try exporting/importing a page at a time that may identify where the problem is. Most macros and special formatting in Excel don't play well with OOo

You might try saving the Excel file as a CSV.
