Hi Team members,

Does anyone know how to decrypt an encrypted Libreoffice Calc file with Java or other languages? Or even some workarounds. Thanks a lot!

LibreOffice version:

What I've tried.

1.       Try some common decrypt API such as javax.crypto.Cipher, failed.

2.       Change the 'ods' extension to 'zip', unzip it and try to parse file to get the content, failed.

Then try to get xml content with Java IO, failed.

Best Regards
