dear all

I am having a problem with a file, which throws out an XML error. The error in the log file is as follows (consistently)
Code:
Repaired Records: Drawing from /xl/drawings/drawing7.xml part (Drawing shape)
Can anyone guide me how to find what the error is finding as drawing7. The file has multiple charts and some user forms with a couple of images on, but nothing is named "Drawing 7". If I can find out what is indexed in this way I can try and fix the problem. Any help greatly appreciated.
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

This refers to the open xml format stucture and its elements.
To understand it better or get further confused 😀 rename your file to *.zip and unzip it to a folder. Then dig in.
Usually these repairs boil down to: something is removed because it is found to be corrupt.
