Unfortunately, no.  If it was deleted, maybe, but if it was overwritten, no

However, depending on your Excel version you might have some type of file recovery option.  Hit F1(Help) and type "file recovery" or "document recovery" and check out the options, then you can see if this was setup in your implementation of Excel.
