What did you open it with? That looks like a workbook does if you open it in Notepad!

What did you save it as (file type)? Did that happen as soon as you pressed save, or when you reopened the file?

I'm afraid not - I have never seen, or heard of, Excel saving a workbook and doing that. It still looks to me like a file that is open in the wrong application.
