I am trying to open and repair an Excel file that may be corrupted. I need help finding the Open and Repair option on Excel for Mac. I can't find it like Excel on Windows does. How do I access it?

Where is the Open and Repair option on Excel for Mac? Microsoft Excel for Mac has a built-in repair tool to help users repair corrupted Excel files on Mac. Note that if you use the Numbers application to open the Excel files on Mac, you can't find the 'Open and Repair' option from the Excel menu.
Follow the steps below to access the Open and Repair option on Excel for Mac:
Step 1. Open the Microsoft Excel application on your Mac, and choose 'File'.
Step 2. Click on the arrow symbol next to the 'Open' option to pull down the menu.
Step 3. Select 'Open and Repair' in the list. Then, Microsoft Excel will repair the corrupted Excel file automatically.
If the 'Open and Repair' option fails, don't worry, and you can use the powerful file recovery tool, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac, to recover the corrupted Excel file quickly.
There are many reasons for file corruption, including the file suddenly closing while editing, the Excel file displaying 0kb or garbled code, parts of the content in the Excel file disappearing, and receiving error codes when opening the Excel file. With EaseUS Mac file recovery software, you can restore the corrupted Excel document with 3 steps:
Step 1. Choose the partition that stores the corrupted Excel file.
Step 2. Click 'Search for lost files' to view the corrupted Excel file on your Mac.
Step 3. Select the corrupted document and click 'Recover' to repair and restore it automatically.
