    Blonde secretary saves workbook in MSWord format (2K)

    Hello,
    A new staff opened an .xls file in word, and clicked through both the opening and saving conversion dialog windows, resulting in the thing being saved in Word format even though the extension continues to read .xls. Anybody know of a way to reconvert this back to a bonafide excel file, retaining the formulas? (mea culpa - no backup)

    Thanks in advance

    I'm afraid the backup (which you haven't got :-( ) is all you can use to get back the formula's.
