When select my excel file, it shows this message : " Can't open file. Sorry, something went wrong, and Microsoft Excel can't open this file."

 

During then i was editing this particular file and the tablet shut down due to battery ran out. When i charge it, trying to open the excel, this was the message shown above. Please help. Thanks.

How to resolve this issue that excel can be open again?

The above mentioned extension is .xlsx and im using Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

It seems the file got corrupt I’m afraid! If you keep the file within SharePoint/OneDrive , try revert to the earlier version! Right click the file and choose version history

Was not saved in other than local drive, guessed that is vulnerable for file to be corrupted in this way. Sadly, and i got to rebuild the data.

Sorry to hear! It may be a reason to have your files within office 365 from now on though :)
