Where did my data go?

Occasional Visitor

I started out with a normal Excel spreadsheet (2016) with data entered. I added in page numbers, switched back to "Normal" view and all of the cells are now empty. However, when I go to print, all data shows up in Print Preview and prints out just fine. So where did the data go in Normal view??

Hi Crystal,


You may have some issues with the edition of Excel you have.

Or maybe that Excel file has some corruption.


Try to repair the Excel file from here.

If this does not work, try to fully repair the Office.



Go to "View tab" of the ribbon then click Arrange All in the Window group.
