I followed a couple of expired threads on here regarding saved documents opening up blank as if you've lost everything almost like the font has been changed to white. I recently experienced this with both Word and Excel and discovered what the problem was.

It seems to be a corrupt font (verdana in my case) and selecting everything and then changing the font fixed the problem.

Indeed, to me the same thing happened a few weeks ago. He opened a document on a computer and it worked perfectly well, yet he opened it on another PC other and not working. Eventually the problem was in a font that was not properly installed.

The problem could be due to excel file corruption. In such case, When you try to open the .xls or .xlsx file, your whole document will not open properly and only characters displayed on the screen. However, with the help of professional excel recovery tool. The tool is capable to repair corrupt excel file and recover the file in their original format.
