    "The file you are trying to open is in different form than specified by the file extension.Verify thtat the file is not corrupted and is from trusted source before opening the file.Do you wnat to open the file now?"
    And when i click ok...the spread sheet is blank..
    then i tried opening with OpenOffice but asks for text imports...but again the spreadsheet is blank...
