Bug: Error message when I open a downloaded excel data


I have downloaded an excel from my kobo form and the excel file was generated and saved locally.
When I open the excel file, it mentions that there is an error in the file and Excel recover the file`

Steps to Reproduce

  1. … Download the Excel file
  2. … Download the file locally
  3. … Open the file - Error message. Excel proposes to recover the file
    4 - File recovered with the link to the error log.

Expected behavior

When I open the excel file (Step 4) it should open the file without any error message.

Actual behavior

Excel error message with the following error recovery:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="true"?>



Errors were detected in file 'C:\.....\Desktop\AFRO_IPC_Scorecard_Form_-_all_versions_-_False_-_2020-11-30-11-50-05.xlsx' - Removed Records: Formula from /xl/worksheets/sheet1.xml part

Additional details

MS Windows - This happens only for this form, I have multiple forms and none of them generate any issue.

- What should topics in this category generally contain?

- Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?
