Follow-up Comment #1:


W/o Excel or Java-based support libs there's only .xlsx, .ods and .gnumeric.

Agreed, one can argue about the documentation and the error messages, but
there's simply no .xls I/O support without external dependencies. Unless
someone finds a Java/COM/whatever-less substitute that can be implemented in

I'll fix the docs & messages but that's about all I can do.

Re-titling bug report, Item group => Incorrect documentation
