"Excel found unreadable content"


M

I received the message "Excel found unreadable content" on a file I had was
opening. I've looked online and found other people with the same problem, but
the cause of it did not apply to the spreadsheet I was working on. In
general, what can cause me to receive the error? Are there any steps I can
take to avoid it? How can I recover my data?

Thank you

... or you could try opening it with open office. Used to be a known way to
recover xl files and might still work. You might lose some formatting, but
if it's the data you care about and you can't see it now, you have nothing
to lose by trying :)
