Message couldn't be clearer...

The file, although it has an "xls" extension is truly NOT an Excel file...

The message tells you to verify the source from whence it came, as it is either corrupt, damaged, or infected!

Perhaps someone created the file with another program and just renamed it...
Perhaps another program is defective and generated that file badly...

In any case, Excel can't process it!
