This error message is encountered in the following scenarios:
I copied and pasted the file to my desktop, right-click and changed '.xlsx' to '.xls'. Boom!! I got my file back.
Try to open your corrupt file in safe mode. Press Windows+R and write excel.exe /safe and click OK. Good Luck

@Muthu69 Hi. If you have tried all possible methods to repair your Excel file but none of them work, then maybe your Excel file is not corrupted, but you just don’t have permission to open it on your system. If you don’t have permission to open the Excel file, it will display the error "Excel cannot open the file because the file format or file extension is not valid." I have tested this on my Windows 10. You can use the following steps to grant everyone on this computer permission to open the Excel file.
That’s it. Now check if you can open the Excel file without any problems. If you want an illustrated guide, refer to this page: https://www.isumsoft.com/office/excel-cannot-open-the-file-because-extension-is-not-valid.html#way2
Please tell me if this helps. Good luck!

With your permission and everyone involved, if I can recommend.
It can help us all if you upload an Excel file, no picture.
You could get a precise solution much faster with a file.
This would also be a blessing for all of us,
as we can understand the problem much better,
a win-win situation for everyone.
*Knowledge of Excel version and the operating system is a must have if you want to proposing a reasonable solution (Example: office version e.g. 2016 or 2019 or 365 web or 365 pro, etc) and your operating system (e.g. Win10 (2004), Win 10 (1903), Mac, etc.).
Thank you for your understanding and patience
