rick_gwu,

Put "excel file repair mac" into Google and you will be spoilt for choice. I cannot vouch for any of what is offered as I'm not an Apple user.

That's the first thing I did before I posted this question : )


I'm not a Mac user either. I can't find a freeware...

It is for one file only, so I rather not buy.

Sometimes you can open an excel file in OpenOffice, and then save it out again as a .xls file, and it just works back in excel.

You could download OpenOffice here: http://www.openoffice.org/
