Hi
While trying to open a Excel 2003 workbook, error message "file is read-only, or the location read-only, or server not responding" is displayed. Whereas other files in the same folders are accessible. Is there any way to recover my huge data about 15000 records.

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.
If you can actually read it, then save it off elsewhere under a new name. You could also try just copying the file to another location outside of excel with explorer
