I am having some issues with an Excel document. Yesterday, I was working from home and opened a document that was stored in our ReadyNas system. I was unable to save my document properly, and now, back at work, I tried to open the document. When I open the document, it says "this file is not in a recognizable format." How can I fix this so I don't have to make the document all over again?

Is there any version difference between your home excel and work excel? If you have 2007 at home, then you might have saved it as a .xlsx. Unless your work version is 2007 as well, it would only be able to read xls. See if you can open it from home again, and save as in another file type.
