    You can try this one.

    Open an new sheet, and make a formula in this sheet that refers to the sheet you can't open. Normally seen you have to get you data from the broken sheet.

    sounds like the file is curupted somewhere

    you say will not open, suggest open in non excel program see if can read,

    if so send to another PC and open, save as new name and back up..
