How to Repair a
Corrupt XLSX File

1.     
Navigate
to the folder containing the XLSX file you want to repair.

2.     
Right-click
the file and select “Copy” and then right-click on a blank space
within the folder and select “Paste.” This action generates a backup
copy of the corrupted file.

3.     
Open
Microsoft Excel 2007 or later.

4.     
Click
the “Office” button in the top left corner of the window and select
“Open.”

5.     
Navigate
to the folder containing the copy of the XLSX file you generated previously and
select it by single-clicking its icon.

6.     
Click
the arrow located to the right of the “Open” button and select
“Open and Repair.”

7.     
Select
“Repair.” If you previously attempted this method and the process
failed, try to extract only the values and formulas by selecting “Extract
Data” instead. Regardless of the method you choose, your data will appear
on the screen within a few seconds if the process completes successfully.
