    Hi
    Can anyone help me with an excel file.
    Its taken months to compile and excel will no longer open it. It just causes an error and then tries again.
    Iv tried the excel repair demos from the internet but nothing seems to work.
    I can open the file in notepad but all the formatting has gone. Has anyone any advice??

    Thanks
    Ian

    You could install OpenOffice (free) and use the spreadsheet which can read Excel files. I t may be able to cope with an error better than Micro$oft
