Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If Excel will not open your file at all, (and it isn’t likely, with that nasty looking addition to the file extension) the first thing I would try would be to rename the file
to it’s original name/file extension – apparently an xlsx file. Example – if your original file was named: open.xlsx, and it is now showing as open.xlsx.wzzzpin, change it back to open.xlsx and try again.

You should try this good ways to open your corrupted Excel file- http://www.wikihow.com/Recover-a-Corrupt-Excel-File

    Are all the extensions the same? Have you tried to rename it back and open the file? (make a copy first in case the file becomes unusable). I would run a virus scan to make sure you do not have an application corrupting your files.

    @Ksohea, what is the file that you wanted to open? There are numerous file format. Sometimes it is not possible to convert/ open a file for its integrity or mechanism.

    @Ksohea: list you file name with the extension please. Also is this the only file affected? If it's not then it may be possible you were hit with ransomware or a virus. You can try making a copy and renaming the extension back to it's original and see if that works.
