I have anExcel file created with Office for Macs 2011 that is now "corrupted" although i have been able to open every day for the past 2 weeks. Is there any way I can open it now?
Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

I have a number of methods that, if it is still possible, will get this file opened.

Can you give me the file please?

- Click the following link:
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

Thank you

Yes it opened. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX a lot of time. Could I have done this myself?

I have over 15 years dealing with these problems Tor, and a lot of programs (some self made).

So technically yes, but you would need to learn what I have picked up over these years.

Or, just let me know here if you ever have the problem again.

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
