Default Corrupted Excel spreadsheet

Hello everybody.

I have an excel spreadsheet that when you try to open it, you get a file can not be read error. I googled an excel repair program but all i get is demo programs that say file is repairable, but you must purchase software.

Does anyone know of a free program that can repair corrupted excel files. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Law. But my secretaries wouldn't stop hounding me so I just restored the file from last Weds. and made them reenter the data from then till now. I guess they never heard of patience is a virtue.
