For xlsx files, they are actually a group of files compressed in Zip file format. Therefore, sometimes, if the corruption is only caused by the Zip file, then you can use Zip repair tools such as WinRAR to repair the file, as follows:

1. Assuming the corrupt Excel file is a.xlsx, then you need to rename it to a.zip
2. Start WinRAR, go to "Tools > Repair Archive" to repair a.zip and generated a fixed file a_fixed.zip.
3. Rename a_fixed.zip back to a_fixed.xlsx
4. Using Excel to open a_fixed.xlsx.

Remember, xlsx file extensions can only be opened in MS Office 2007 or later.

Which version of office are you using?

Refer to this link: There a numerous ways to recover a damaged xlsx file.

http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-ways-to-recover-a-corrupted-excel-workbook/

And it may not be that the file is damaged at all, but security locked. Which often occurs on enterprise domains. It's related to security permissions, such that the file has to be transferred to another folder/drive/network server in order to be opened. The above link addresses this issue as well.

Alternatively: Open Office is an open source free Office Solution comparable to MS Office, in that it can do pretty much everything MS Office can do, and more often than not open damaged xlsx files which can be re-saved and re-opened in MS Office Solutions.

Here is the direct download link for Open Office:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openofficeorg.mirror/4.1.1/binaries/en-US/Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.1_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojects%2Fopenofficeorg.mirror%2F&ts=1418503567&use_mirror=softlayer-dal

Remember they do call the programs within Open Office by different names; For Example "Writer" = MS Word, Calc = Excel, and so forth.

Hope this helps guide you in the right direction!
