I don't think you have a choice but to shut down the Excel instance and hope the file was auto-saved and recoverable.  Unfortunately, the clipboard buffer may be lost - any chance you can at least paste that into a notepad or Word document?  If you try pasting into Word, it might let you pasted the data as an Excel object.
