If you send me the file, I'll try opening it with Office XP. It's error recovery is really good. I'd also like to look at it for evidence of viruses.
The typical reason for file corruption that we see here at the MS XL Support Group is either virus corruption, opening the a: drive door before Excel is finished writing to it, a dropped network connection (same basic reason as the a: drive scenario) and a system crash while editing. Did one of these happen to you?
ok folks, i got it, it appears that the file was created in a newer version than i have. (office 2000) (versus office professional) had the person save as version 4.0 and i got it to come up and work. Thanks all
