Hi
A much used spreadsheet now only opens with Drawing and displays a single black page. Tried 'open with scalc' same result. A few blue screens and crashes are probably the reason. Any ideas about a rescue? XP and 3.1
Cheers

You can restore any broken files from your daily backups.

Can you open the file using File-->Open instead of double clicking? See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307859 to correct your file associations.

Using file open still pick drawing to open. No back up I'm afraid. Downfall of relying on a RAID mirror.
