    Corrupt Excel file

    Can anyone get anything of any meaning from the attached file?

    Tried a few things without joy

    (You will have to rename from .doc to .xls)

    corupt

    Are you 100% sure it was an xls file and if so from which version.
    I can open it but with rubbish in it
    Usually corrupt files don't open i then run various recovery programs on them and hey presto they are OK.

    This file is not saying its corrupt though.

    Positive - One of the finance team were working on it the other day on a college machine (Office 2003).

    backup

    Do you have a previous copy of the file from back up
    and if so does that open OK.
    One other think was it created by someone using excel or did another application create it eg Sage or one of the Crapita bits of software??

    We do have a backup, but the network and backup server have been having rather major problems since Wednesday!

    Just thought it was worth asking if anyone could get the file to open but obviously not
