Forum Thread: Excel File Is Damaged, Through the Backup Nothing Happened

Dear experts, all my excel files have been corrupted and I am not able to open any of them. I tried a couple of free downloads to recover Excel files on Google, but none of them helped me. Your file severely damaged cannot be recovered, this is the message I receive.

Please help me as some files are important.

Try opening the .dbf file in Excel or other program that supports opening the .dbf format.

Once opened in Excel you should be able to view the file, delete any "bad data", and resave to a new name (with the .dbf extension).

Also possible to create a new table with the structure of the old table, append records from the old to the new. May salvage records until the corruption is encountered.

or you can try to use recover xls online
