Exel file open problem


I have a problem opening an excel document. If i open a document it opens excel but shows nothing, it does show in the toolbar the cell that it should be at and wat is in that sell but no work sheet. if i create a new document it opens fine afterwords.

Is there a solution for this?

Hi there
can you attach your EXCEL file to a post or a link -- I'll see why it doesn't work.

Edit off any personal / private info first of course.

What is the font colour? Same as background? Is the cell format set as custom with ;;; ( ; three times)

Save the file as a .csv file (use a delimiter that is not present in the document, usually a tab) then open a new excel file and import the .csv file.
