.XLSX is an Excel 2007 file from the Office 2007 suite. If you have an older version of Microsoft Office, you can download the "Compatibility Pack" from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=941B3470-3AE9-4AEE-8F43-C6BB74CD1466&displaylang=en

This will allow you to open 2007 format documents in older versions of Office. If you don't have any version of Office, you can convert it online and have it sent to your e-mail into a file you can open through:

www.zamzar.com

If you don't have any kind of Office Suite, you can get one free at:

www.openoffice.org

This will open Office 2003 files and so you can convert that .xlsx to .xls and open it with that. Hope this is helpful.

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.

I have several excel files stored on my system. I used these files from the same computer daily. Yesterday, when i tried to open several files in Excel 2007 then i found following error on my co,puter...


  • Navigate to the folder containing the XLSX file you want to repair.
  • Right-click the file and select "Copy" and then right-click on a blank space within the folder and select "Paste." This action generates a backup copy of the corrupted file.
  • Open Microsoft Excel 2007 or later.
  • Click the "Office" button in the top left corner of the window and select "Open."
  • Navigate to the folder containing the copy of the XLSX file you generated previously and select it by single-clicking its icon.
  • Click the arrow located to the right of the "Open" button and select "Open and Repair."
  • Select "Repair." If you previously attempted this method and the process failed, try to extract only the values and formulas by selecting "Extract Data" instead. Regardless of the method you choose, your data will appear on the screen within a few seconds if the process completes successfully.

    In my PC Office 2003 is installed. Now sometimes I received Word & Excell 2007 files which is not opening in my PC. Can you tell me without installing Office 2007 how can I convert those docx and xlsx...


    You don't have to convert the .docX or .xlsX to view in MS Office 2003, just install the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats" and you should be able to open files, created or saved as the MS Office 2007 format.

    If you need to edit the files you can too, but you will saved it in the MS Office 2003 formats.

    Hope it helps.

    When i receive Microsoft files with suffixes like .docx, .xlsx, .pptx am unable to open such documents in my laptop. What should i do / download to open these files. For your information i have Windows 7


    MS Office 2003 and earlier will not read the old Doc extension files natively.

    There are two possible solutions:

    1. Upgrade your Microsoft Office to either the 2007 or the 2010 version.

    2. Go to the MS web site and download a little program that will extend your MS Office to handle the new file extensions. See the link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en
