    If it's on a network drive, copy it to your hard drive via Windows Explorer. If that doesn't work, I'll be happy to attempt recovery. Send me a private message and I'll give you an email to send the file and password to. I have other programs, like Smartsuite, that I can use to attempt to recover your file.

    Was the original file stored on the PC you are using, or was copied from another machine (either over the network or on a floppy)?
    What version of Excel are you using?
