I'm working in school. We have a lot of document on our computers. But some of it are very important, where are stored reports on MS Excel 2016. Today one of excel files has denied opening with message: Excel found unreadable content in <Year_Report_2017.xslx>.

Error Cause

This type of errors generally occurs when someone migrates from an older version of Microsoft Office to a new one. For example from Microsoft Office 2003 to Microsoft Office 2010.

Some recommendation on list

1st recommendation: do a redundant backup now, i.e., 2 copies in removable media
2nd one: copy a few files and test them in other computers and/or upload them here
3nd one: uninstall and reinstall Excel
4th: ran an online antivirus, then update your AV definitions
5th: same for malware detectors (i.e., Spy Bot Search & Destroy)
6th: general backup
7th: format disks and reinstall Windows and software
8th: if you don't know how to restore xls file, I usually use Google
