Hi,

I am a huge issue with a workbook, I can't open it and I get the following error message "Unable to read file". The recovery then gives me the same error and closes Excel.

The file was working perfectly until yesterday, and an error may have occured while I was saving it the last time.

Does someone have already had this kind of issue? How were you able to recover your file?

Thx

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Up,

I have been able to recover the contents of the sheets with a recovery software.

I'm still unable to retrieve the macros that were in the document.
