    My Excel 2007 Files seriously corrupted

    Dear Experts,

    All my excel files have been corrupted and I'm unable to open any of them.
    I tried couple of free download for excel file recovery in google but non of them helped me.

    I see message from Microsoft Excel: Your file is severey damaged unable to recover is the message I am getting.

    Please help me....as they are some critical files.

    Thanks in advance..

    Good day,

    To manually repair a file of MS Excel 97-2003

    1. On the File menu, click Open.
    2. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to open, and click the arrow next to the Open button.
    3. Click Open and Repair, and then choose which method you want to use to recover your workbook.

    For MS Excel 2007 another commands

    1. Click the Microsoft Office Button Button image, and then click Open.
    2. In the Open dialog box, select the corrupted workbook that you want to open.
    3. Click the arrow next to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
    4. Do one of the following:
    < To recover as much of the workbook data as possible, click Repair.
    < To extract values and formulas from the workbook when an attempt to repair the workbook is not successful, click Extract Data.

    Check out this article to see much more about Excel file recovery process:- http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-...xcel-workbook/

    If all above methods don’t work, then you may try third-party tools such as Excel Fix Toolbox from source: http://www.excel.fixtoolbox.com/

    You may use it to recover some Excel files successfully. It provides a free demo version so that you can try to see if the data you want can be recovered or not.

    Good luck!

    Hi NealReyd,

    Follow these steps to repair a corrupted 2007 Excel file by using the inbuilt Microsoft Excel repair tool:
    1. Open Microsoft Excel 2007, click the Office button, and then select Open.
    2. In the Open dialog box that pops-up, browse and select the corrupt Excel 2007 file. Click the arrow next to the Open button and choose Open and Repair.
    3. Click Repair when prompted to recover as much data as you can from the Excel 2007 file.
    4. If a repair fails, follow steps 1 till 3, and then click Extract Data to extract values and formulas from the corrupt file.
    5. In the window that appears, click Convert to Values or Recover Formulas to extract workbook data.

    If this manual method doesn’t work to repair your corrupted file, you can go for the third-party tool. Because performing the 2007 Excel repair process manually can be time-consuming. Also, manual methods to recover a corrupt Excel file doesn’t guarantee recovering the complete data.

    I hope this manual method helps to recover your file.

    Best Regards,
    Alice Cooper
