With PowerGREP, you can quickly search for a piece of information through files and folders on your computer, including Microsoft Excel spreadsheets saved in XLS and XLSX files. Simply type in a keyword or phrase in the Search box, select which folder PowerGREP should go through and which types of files are of interest.

Go to Start (Windows circle bottom left on your desktop), click on Computer (middle right of menu) and in the very top right of the screen where the words "Search Computer" appear, type Collar .xlsx and press Enter. By default it should search file names and content so it should find your file.
