    Whatever you have done, but what did it mean, "all of my Excel files have the original format"? What did you mean original format? The default format is .xlsx .xls. so is it another format/ extension before that one? Also is this excel for Mac/Excel for Windows?

    What do you mean by original format? Are we talking the spreadsheet layout/design? Are we talking cell formatting? If it was one file I would say maybe you had the sheet highlighted and accidentally clicked "clear contents". Check how big these files are in bytes in size in windows explorer. If they are very small it may be the file(s) got cleared by a virus. Are these files located on a server or shared directory where someone else may have access?
