Corrupt styles in 2010: How to remove?


New Member

I found this post in the <a href="">Excel Forums</a> and I had the same problem. It was never answered.

How can I remove corrupt styles from an Excel 2000 workbook ?

I've tried deleteing through the menus - but that doesn't work, and I've
tried through VBA, but that fails with an error for the styles that are
corrupt. (Delete method of style class failed)

for i=1 to activeworkbook.styles.count:debug.print

Inspecting the names of the styles that are failing to delete displays a
couple of non-printable characters show as squares, or Yen symbols.

Any idea how to obliterate these styles?

I've written similar scripts to no avail.
