    How to repair and recover a corrupted excel 2007 file

    Grt Day,
    One of my excel files has refused to open and i think it is corrupted. The error message is; Excel cannot open because the file format or extension is not valid .Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.

    How do i repair and recover all the data in the excel file.

    Hi,

    Not sure about 2007 but in 2003 the Open dialogue has a drop down arrow next to the Open button on it and there's an option for Open and Repair.

    Use code tags when posting your VBA code: [code] Your code here [/code]

    Remember, saying thanks only takes a second or two. Click the little star to give some Rep if you think an answer deserves it.
