  • Serious error opening Microsoft Excel spreadsheet

    Hello community.

    A months ago I have created Microsoft Excel 2016 spredsheet. I could open it at the beginning, but now I am struggling with this error message: 'The document caused a serious error'.
    Do you have any suggestions how to work around it? Any suggestions ideas would be great.

    This problem occurs because the file is included in the list of disabled files for the Microsoft Office program. The program adds a file to this list if the file causes a serious error, such as causing the program to close unexpectedly (crash) during two or more attempts to open it.

    This error message lets you avoid potential problems that may occur if you open the file.

    To resolve this problem, follow this Excel recovery thread:
