    Corrupted Personal.xls

    Howdy,

    When I open excel (2003 or 2007) I get a note that personal.xls is not in a recognisable format (refer to attachments). Any ideas what is causing the problems and a possible fix.

    Excel still works fine, but I would like to fix it if possible.

    Thanks

    That looks very much to me like it's actually in a 2007 format (either .xlsm or .xlsb) but has been named .xls
    Change the name to Personal.xlsm and see if that helps.
