  • First check that she's not using versioning on that library.  If she is, try restoring any of the previous verisons of that spreadsheet.

    Or, check in your back-up product.  Some products, like Symantec and AvePoint have granular item level restoration abilities that may help. 

    Failing that, SP2007 didn't allow for remote database attachment, so you'd need to have either a test/development/staging environment ready.  Attach your SQL back-up to it and attach the content database to a new web application.  From there you'll be able to delve into the site and retrieve the file needed.
