How to convert .shs file to .xls format in office 07.pls help......

1. Open a blank Excel workbook by selecting "New" from the "File" menu.
2. Drag and drop the .shs file on to the new workbook by highlighting the scrap file icon on the desktop and dragging it onto the worksheet. Alternatively, you can copy and paste. To do this, click the scrap file icon, and then right-click and select "Copy" from the pop-up menu. Left-click on the Excel workbook, and then right-click and select "Paste" from the pop-up menu. The information stored in the scrap file should now appear within the worksheet.
3. Save the file. Select "Save As" from the "File" menu, and then enter a file name in the box at the top of the window that opens. By default, Excel saves files in the workbook format native to the version. For versions prior to Microsoft Office 2007, this is the .xls format. If you have Excel 2007 or later and want to save the file as .xls, select this format from the "Format" drop-down menu below the box where you entered the file name.

How To Save A Workbook In Another File Format?
Most of the time, users prefer to save the workbook in the current file format as a.xlsx extension. But often, it's the case where you may need to save a workbook in other file formats, such as the file format of an earlier version of Excel, a text file, or a PDF or XPS file. MS Office technical support experts have suggested users that while saving their workbook in another file format, they need to follow few of its formatting, data, and other essentials features which may not be saved well. For a list of various file formats, also known as various file types, one can easily open or save in Excel 2013

Steps to save a workbook in another file format
Step1: Accessing the workbook
·Open and get access to the workbook which you wish to save.
Step2: One DRIVE option
·Under the 'Places' section, simply pick up the place where you wish to save the workbook. For example, if you choose the "OneDrive" to save it to the Web location or in the Computer to save it in a local folder, you can save it as your Documents.
Step3: Save As dialogue box
·In the "Save As' dialog box, one is required to navigate to the location according to their choices.
Step 4: Working with the file formats
·In the Save as type list, just click on the file format which you wish to save and then click the arrows to easily scroll to the file formats that aren't yet visible in the list as suggested by MS Office tech support team members.
A note of caution:
·The file formats that you'll see may vary, depending on what type of sheet you are actively working in your workbook (a worksheet, chart sheet, or other type of sheet).
·In the File name box, try to accept a specific suggested name or simply type a new name for your workbook.

Corrupt excel 2010 file

1 - Using "Open and repair"

Microsoft Excel has a built-in repair tool for corrupted files. To access it, go to File and Open. A menu will pop up in which you'll have to select the file you want to fix and then choose "Open and repair" from the dropdown menu. This will open a dialogue box in which you can pick between the repair option (which will recover as much information as possible) and the extract option (that will copy values and formulas). The two alternatives combined should work fine to save your work.

2 - Saving the file to a different format

If you can open the file but you can't modify it or save the changes, you should use this method. You'll have to save the file to a different format (such as SYLK or HTML) via the "Save as" menu. Once you've done this, you'll have to open the recently saved file and then save it once again (but this time, you'll have to choose the Excel Workbook as the format). By doing this, you'll be creating a fresh new file with all the data from the corrupted file.

3 - Opening the file in Microsoft Word

This option is only available for the people that have the Microsoft Excel converter installed on their PC (it can be downloaded from the Microsoft website). You simply have to open the corrupted Excel file with Word. However, you should know that this method only works for retrieving data (all the structures from the sheet will be gone, such as formulas and macros).

4 - Altering the Calculation option

If your file isn't opening at all you can try to adjust the calculation option. Simply open Excel in a blank workbook, go to the "Tools" menu and look for "Options". There you'll find the "Calculation" tab in which you'll have to look for the "Calculation" section and set it to "Manual". Click OK and then try to open the corrupted file once again.

5 - Linking the corrupted file

In this method, you'll have to link one cell of a blank worksheet to the corrupted workbook. Be sure to create the new worksheet in the same location as the corrupted file. Once you've done this go to the blank worksheet and enter the following in the A1 cell: <Filename>!A1. This will copy the data from the A1 cell of the corrupted file to the new sheet. In case it works, simply click "Edit" on the cell and select an area like the one covers the cell that contain data in the damaged file, and then click Paste. Then (and with the cells still selected) click Copy on the Edit menu.
