This is a corrupt file!

I have tried various ways to open this file but no joy!

How do I "Restore Previous Versions"?

I am not familiar with this.  Where is it?
Nick RhodeIT DirectorCommented:
Only thing I can think of is to do a system restore if it is on a workstation or if on the server restore from backup.  Had very little success fixing or attempting to repair the .xlsx files but I did find a tool that helps assist with extracting the data to a csv.  You can always try it out

Thanks folks,

The technibble tool helped.
"Restore Previous Versions" is a very handy feature of Windows Vista and later.

Browse to the file in Windows Explorer and right-click on it.  You should see Restore Previous Versions as an option.
