copy from openoffice to emacs


I want to copy 100 rows from the openoffice calc file to a txt file opened in emacs at console mode, and I can't do it correctly.

I've open an openoffice cal file, and I select all rows and do copy. I've a txt file opened in emacs console. When I do paste, it will only be pasted 25 rows, and not all.

I've not experienced this problem when using Emacs. As a possible workaround would you be willing to try exporting to a plain text file (perhaps CSV) and then opening it in Emacs?
