Have someone open that file for you from Excel 2000 (or it may require Excel XP), and then save it back to a Lotus 1-2-3 file. Often, different vendor programs don't see the corruption in another vendor's file. I have 2000 and XP available to me if you don't know anyone with it. Feel free: [email protected]

Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried that already. Also have used a viewer called Key view pro. No luck with anything so far.

Then try opening it with Word, you should at least get your data, unless you used many sheets and even then, I'm not sure it's totally lost. I will take a shot at it still, if you like.
