Can you save the Excel file using Excel 2003? It could just be a coincidence, the file could be corrupted. – Mar 24 '11 at 10:13
@taspeotis: I don't understand. I installed 2010, so 2003 does not exist anymore... – serhio Mar 24 '11 at 10:15
Go to another computer, with a copy of Excel 2003. – Mar 24 '11 at 10:16
@taspeotis: and what should I copy to the other computer, man, if I can't save? :( I don't need the old file, I need my modifications. – serhio Mar 24 '11 at 10:17
@serhio did you try saving it in 2010 format ? – Shekhar Mar 24 '11 at 10:26

Are you able to create a new spreadsheet make changes and save it ?
If you can , I suggest you create a new file and copy-paste the contents of the existing file into it and save it .
