If you do not have a registered copy of Excel in the version installed on your PC, that file may not be recognized. What OS are you running? What version of Excel are you running? What is the extension of the file?

Excel workbook error


I came across this issue today. An update to the Office Compatibility Pack that was still on a computer caused the default PROGRAM for .docx and .xlsx files to be the Microsoft Open XML Converter program and make the "Default Programs" in Control Panel think that Excel and Word were actually the Microsoft Open XML Converter scholarship essay writing assistance program as well.UNINSTALLING the Office Compatibility Pack in Programs and Features and then a simple reboot fixed the issue.
Also:
1: Try to repair it manually when MS Excel does not automatically STARTS File recovery mode.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click OPEN.
Now select the corrupted workbook that you want to open.
Click the arrow NEXT to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
Choose either Repair (to recover as much of the FILE data) or Extract data (to extract values and formula when repair process is not successful).
2: Open with Open Office: Try to open your Excel file in Open Office. It is an open-source Office suite that is able to open & SAVE Microsoft Excel files.
3: Save in HTML Format: Open your Excel file and save it in HTML format. By saving the workbook in HTML format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
4: Save in SYLK Format: Open your Excel file and save it in SYLK format. By saving the workbook in SYLK format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
5: Try 3rd party software like Excel Repair Toolbox

Recover xlsx file damaged


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.

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.

Hi Team, I have created macro in MS Excel2007 and after executing macro output file will be created MS Excel2003. Once MS Excel2003 file closed and reopen all the formating lost. How can overcome this...


It is unlikely that you can really overcome this as Office 2003 and Office 2007 have completely different file formats and structures. But if you output it to an Office 2007 file and use the Microsoft converter for Office 2003 than it may work. The converter can be found here
