    Excel cannot open the file 'file.xlsx' because the file format

    Every now and then, when I try opening an Excel file, I get a message saying that "Excel cannot open the file 'file.xlsx' because the file format or the file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.

    are you double clicking on the file in a folder or are you opening from within excel?

    I would suggest that you open it from within excel.
