    "I was living a nightmare looking for a solution till I stumbled upon this one. So many people telling you what to do and it was all wrong. Of course the solution was on Microsoft's website. The moral here is to go to the source instead of listening to self proclaimed experts."

    "This gives some decent tips on recovering a bad Excel file. I'd say a few are rather ordinary suggestions most can come up with on their own, but others are very useful. However, that is all this guide offers so it is fairly limited, no other fix suggestions for issues you can encounter when using Excel."

    "I am trying to learn Excel for work. I went to Microsoft.com and was able to watch a ton of videos on how to not only use Excel but how to fix the errors. I learned a lot and the videos are very valuable to me. I found them engaging and I was able to maintain focus. A lot of training videos are so boring your mind wanders, these were pretty good. "
