excel found unreadable content


S

sb07

I created a worksheet, with very simple formulas, saved in Excel 97-2003, had
re-opened and made changes to the file several times, then today I try and
open the file and it stated that Excel found unreadable content and asked if
I wanted to recover content. So I click yes, and then another error message
stated that excel was able to recover formulas but some data in the cells may
have been lost. So my entire document is blank. The data are very important
and would really like some help figuring out how to recover the file! Please.
Thanks

Some people have said that using OpenOffice.Org can sometimes open corrupted
workbooks.

You may want to download it and try it.

Or see if someone else -- maybe even with a different version that you're using
-- can open it.

Hi, I am facing the same issue as well. And it was recovered by Open Office
However, do you know what is the root cause to that? Because soon after usin
for few times, the file will again be corrupted.
