I have a Excel file made with Office Mac that I get a error message of unable to read file, any suggestions on how to open would be appreciated.



Please send me the file and I will see if I can recover it (or recover part of the data). To send the file go to and upload it there. You will then get a page that has the download link. Copy the download link and come back here and paste it in your reply.

What you sent me is a very small file (less than 28K). There can't be much data in it to start with.


Can you tell me what data is supposed to be in that file in terms of number of columns and rows and number of sheets?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.
1 sheet

59 rows
