Error opening xlsx file in office 2010 when saved through Open Xml format


  • We have added DataValidations to the existing excel file and saved the Workbook and getting an error when trying to open the files saved with Open XML Format in MS Office 2010.

    Error Msg - 'Excel found unreadable content'

    Although it gets opened in other tools.

  • Hello Ankit dubey,

    Sorry for late reply. What's the current state of your issue now? Have you resolved it?

    If not, I would confirm with below information to try to reproduce your issue.

    How did add DataValidations to excel file? Using Excel manually or OpenXML SDK? If you used OpenXML SDK, what's the relation code.

    What do you mean saved with OpenXML format? What's the related code?

    Best Regards,
