I am not able to open a 20 MB Excel file using Start Office, but I can do that in MS Excel. Can soemone tell me if something has gone worng during installation or is it a bug in the Star Office suite? If it is a bug, is a patch available for it?
Thanks

Hi Prasad,
You might want to run the Microsoft > StarOffice conversion on the file, then try to open it once it's converted to a Calc file.
In the main desktop area, choose File > AutoPilot > Microsoft Import and go from there. (Page 148 if you've got the "StarOffice Companion.")
Then in the main desktop area choose File > Open and try opening the converted file.
Hope this helps,
Solveig
