if anyone can help, i woudl be forever grateful. I have developed elaborate financial models in excel for my copmany. however, in the last week, when I have gone to open them, i get an error that says.

Errors were detected...
Microsoft Office Excel File Repair Log

Errors were detected in 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.

When i open the file, it no longer has any formulas or formatting, making it useless. It woudl take me weeks to reproduce. I have been updating older versions, but it keeps happening. THis is the third time..., right after i update all the data of course. Could this be a virus? anyway i can repair this?
