    Can any of your users open the spreadsheet successfully? What operating system? Anything in the event logs? Where is the spreadsheet stored and how is it being accessed?

      I would try and find out who knows Excel in your company and get them to help. VBS can be dangerous, although I would imagine this is likely harmless.

      Do you have backups of the file, when did the problem occur etc?

        Unfortunatley we do not have backup of this file... I am going to have a programmer who has some experience with VB Code take a look... thank you for the replies

          Treat this as an opportunity to present the case to management that you need to invest in a backup strategy.
