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.

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

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
