Headless libreoffice doesn't create file


I am trying to convert a PDF document from an Excel and PowerPoint document. I installed it and ran the command. It gives no warning.. Just doesn't create a new PDF document. I've successfully done this before, but I think it was a different server. I've checked file permissions, but don't think it is the issue (I've tried as a normal user and as root).

I could convert doc, docx, and txt files, but not xls, xlsx, ppt, and pptx files.

Thoughts why? Is there a verbose option or a log file which I could check for clues?

Thank you


Code:
yum -y install libreoffice-headless libreoffice-writer
Code:
Package 1:libreoffice-headless-4.0.4.2-14.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Package 1:libreoffice-writer-4.0.4.2-14.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Code:
libreoffice --headless -convert-to pdf myfile.xlsx

Need to install libreoffice-calc and libreoffice-impress for Excel and PowerPoint files, respectively.

Don't think this was previously required. Any comments would be appreciated.
