Corrupted xls file

I have a small xls file that has somehow become corrupted. When excel opens the file the display is gibberish, like hieroglyphics.  Can anyone help please? The file is attached.

I've tried everything & I don't think this files can be recovered. Don't bother buying any file recovery tools because that is what I tried it with & it did not work.

Thanks for your help wantabe2. That was the conclusion I had arrived at before I posted it here. I wondered if it were something simple I had overlooked. Regards, Ric.
