Clean out a template that is easily corrupted


Board Regular
Mar 25, 2004
Hello Excel Wizards,

I have a template I have built up over the years. It started as a fairly simple workbook but over time the calculations and functions have become more and more complex. Recently, the files saved become corrupted--not all the time, but more frequently than ever before. I imagine there is all kinds of garbage code and links and whatever else is hidden inside over time.

Does anyone know of a service that will cleanse the file? I looked into this Excel Recovery tool, but wanted to know if you all have any insight for me.
