I have a xls file which I can open in excel 2003 but when i try to open it in excel 2007. The message below appears "Excel found unreadable content in work.xls. Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? If you trust the source of this workbookm, click yes."

After I clicked yes...the content displayed is unreadable. Below is the log file.

The following is a list of repairs:
Damage to the file was so extensive that repairs were not possible. Excel attempted to recover your formulas and values, but some data may have been lost or corrupted.

How do I solve this problem.
