Re: Unable to read file appears for no apparant reason
I had the same problem, excel 2000 file with multi worksheets didn't save properly, so the fault was mine, but I never saw the problem before, I saved it anyway under its own name (should have saved as another name!!) then once I tried to bring it back up, got an unable to read file dialog. A whole day's work potentially lost!! Downloaded OpenOffice as recommended in above post, darned if it didn't work, brought back the file. The only difference I could note was that special cell names I had assigned were somewhat different (The same cell in each worksheet was named A, now each worksheet varied it by naming it A_1 A_2 A_3 etc, which was not that bad to work with.
Just wanted to thank the Original Poster and let people know that http://www.openoffice.org/index.html worked for me!
