Can you please help me with this one? I have read few articles and questions here and there but there seems to be no answer at all.

I have an excel file (sample.xls) that turned into sample.xls.XML file.

I tried changing the .xls.XML into .zip as I read previously but it does not work for me. I even tried opening a blank excel and open and repair, etc... but it still did not work for me.

Can anyone here please help me?

Thank you in advance!

  • Rename it and remove the .XML extension (leaving only the .XLS extension)? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 24 '16 at 18:51
  • I tried it first, but it just didn't work. – MTR Aug 24 '16 at 19:13
  • Is that tag right? 2003? What you're doing works with xlsx - not 2003 – Raystafarian Aug 27 '16 at 9:58
