Check if the workbook has got hidden somehow.

Open a blank workbook and go to the View Tab in the ribbon and follow the instruction shown in the following image.

SInce the file is on the server, could someone else have it open? Were you logged onto another computer and opened this file, if so maybe you forgot to close the file before logging onto this computer.
