Windows logs will have an entry for the crash with the stack trace. I can reach out offline for an e-mail follow up if that is OK with you. You are the Man!! Thanks for sharing this. It seems it has worked for most of the people. Not for me. I downloaded your NET4. The files seem to be cleaned, yet they did not open after the app finished processing the files. At the end of each run, an Excel window popped up, but the file did not open.
The next time I try to paste, destination cells are empty. Any idea on what is going on? If not, I would like to connect with you offline and look at the files that have a problem. Please reply with the Skype check. I will contact you directly if the problem is not related to skype.
Thank you for posting this valuable tool. I thought I was faced with rebuilding all corruputed files when I found this. Now hours of productivity have been given back to my company. Can someone please translate this article? Based on what I understood there is a push for VBA. You are better off with the Open XML based clean up. Hello — I just want to express my sincere thanks for your help. Again, thanks. This tool is a god-send!
I was running into limits on several spreadsheets, and I suspected it had something to do with copying things from other spreadsheets. Got my issues fixed in a jiffy! This tool is like an amazing find and You are nothing short of a BLESSING! We have been dealing with this huge file with so many issues. There were days were I would 30 seconds before the file would respond after I hit enter.
Also, copying and pasting was a nightmare. One question though, I would like to understand if you are able to obtain any of the data that runs through this app. Hi Kristy, Thank you for the feedback. Are you concerned with your data privacy? All versions of the XLStylesTool even browser based accessed or downloaded from the locations listed in my blog posts work on the client machine in memory and the memory is released as soon as scanning and processing are done.
It is not an understatement when I say this saved me hours of time. I absolutely understand your concern and that is why there are detailed data privacy disclosures in the Silverlight and Windows 8 App version blog posts. Please be assured that your data is not transmitted anywhere by my app.
Some people even asked if the tool was a virus. Seriously, would I put my name on a virus and would Microsoft include it in the KB article? As long as you download the apps from the links on my site you are getting official versions of the tool. Productivity wise the highest stat that I got from a user in Finance department was an estimate of 20 saved days per calendar year per person!
They actually created a PowerPoint presentation to teach their team members on how to use the tool. These guys had a ton of old huge workbooks that they were upgrading to new versions of Excel for almost 15 years. Hi, We are using excel. According to Microsoft this is happening because of the Excel , it supports only 4, different combinations of cell formats. XLStyles Tool will work only on. XLSX or. XLSM file. You can always bulk update. XLS files to. There is a post in my blog with all necessary resources.
Thank you very much! It worked great! I also appreciate the fact that you are not charging people for this. hey, apologies…typo …. What version of Excel are you using? If it is or newer XLStylesTool will fix your file. Have you tried using it? Hi Celia, Microsoft Knowledge Base article explains what is causing this error in Excel Chances are your problem is caused by the excessive style count as well.
I have seen spreadsheets that exceeded the 4, unique formats maximum limit primarily in test labs, and very few in the real world. Your backup copy most likely is close to the limit.
If you have a friend with Excel that can help you save your workbook as xlsx or xlsm and clean it with my tool it would get you the best results. thanks XL Geek, for the solution- I will follow yr instructions when it happens again. maybe deleting those copied worksheets will help? But thanks a lot …cannot thank you enough. Please keep lots of backups if you choose not to clean up your workbooks.
If the workbook blows up there is no way to get the formatting back without a backup file. thanks XL Geek, I will keep back ups and also try to clean, cleaning sounds more complicated. Hi XL Geek, I am using Excel and I am getting the too many cell formats error.
What should I do? How do I use your tool? should I just run it? XLStylesTool saved me hours and hours of work. Could you please e-mail me on the matter to [edited for privacy] at gmail. The utility worked great!!!! I have been messing with this problem for weeks,.
Finally discovered your utility. THANK YOU!!!! Much appreciated! That means your issue is not related to corrupted styles, but something else. I can contact you via e-mail and look at your file.
I may be able to spot what is wrong with it. I really appreciated your help, and I feel really empowered by the way you explained the solution to me! You knowledge is great and so is your kindness! If not I can e-mail the zip package to you if your company allows zip attachments.
Just wanted to say thanks. Your app cut the workbooks size in half and is fast. Thanks much. A comment, as requested — It Worked! Apparently approx 55, Styles Max ID, 11 Style Node Count, size of file went down from a Mb to k. Not dramatic, but saved the file. Pingback: Too many different cell formats error message Net 4. You can use Silverlight version if you want minimal install and automatic upgrades. The how-to video and manual were very helpful. Thanks so much!!! Your tool works great, better than anything the million dollar IT department at work can suggest.
Looks like everyone is raving about your application and Windows Support is even linking to it so I was hoping to get my hands on a copy. However, our company does not permit access to Live or Silverlight. Would it be possible for you to email me a copy to the email address below would be great if you could keep that from going public? Your e-mail is never exposed. I sent the files. Hope they work in your highly restricted environment.
Can you please try sending through to there? Thanks again! Just forwarded original message to the new address. Let me know if it works. What OS are you running? Thanks so much. This is going to get rid of a whole lot of headaches! Thanks from me, too! Just used your online tool. You saved my non-administrative-access, quarterly-statement-deadline-having tuchus. Thank you for this tool it has been very helpful. Is there a way in code that that can be done in Visual Studios ?
The main algorithm is patent protected. You have tools that support any client including MAC OS via Silverlight plus bulk file processing. Commercial use of the cleansing algorithm is not permitted. I was having formatting issues with excel.
I ran your software and found I had around 52, styes. After converting the file to normal everything worked perfectly for a while. However, when I now copy and paste data into my spread sheet the style count returns to 52, and my spreadsheet now longer works.
Every time I run my file through the XLCleaner tool the styles reverts back to 0 until I copy over a single cell then. Any idea how to stop the styles from changing? Your source file from which you are copying from has bad styles in it. Also, you are most likely copying between two separate Excel instances.
Even a single cell in that case will bring in all bad styles. Clean up the source file and start copying inside the same Excel instance. Hallo und 1. Ich habe ein umfangreiches Excel-Tool noch in der xlVersion beruflich im Einsatz mit denen ich umfangreiche Auswertungen erzeuge. alle 3 Monate werde ich ausgebremst durch die Limitierung bezgl. der Anzahl der Zellformate.

Much greetings from Wolfsburg S. Worked to remove corrupted excel files. corrupted excel styles this fantastic free tool will do the trick.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for making this — I was at wits end with a new model I have spent weeks on that I didn;t want to stay corrupted or redo everything just to get rid of 2 stupid styles. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Dear Sergey, thank you SO much for creating this elegant application. Saved me 2 days of brain killing work. Take care, D. Where do I find the orignal XLStylesTool for.
I clicked on the link above for original tool and it took me to the. Thank you so much for sharing this Utility. It fixed what would have been a very large headache for me, and my team. This utility fixed the problem, and kept us moving forward instead of retracing our steps on our project. Thank you!!!!! Hi, I clicked on the link above and it does not work. It is possible that my company does not permit access to Live or Silverlight. Would it be possible for you to email me a copy. I have. Window 7.
Thank you beaucoup….. for super fast reply. Recevied file and it works beautifully. Is it ok for me to foward the file to my co-workers? Please try to distribute from my site if you can. I would like to know what the true demand is for this app and issue. The core algorithm is already protected by the US patent and EU patent is pending. Glad I could help. Things like the count of styles, the style names, values, creators, etc.
What skillset do you have: are you comfortable with Excel OM, VBA, OpenXML? What types of files are you dealing with: OpenXML or binary? Is it ok to contact you via e-mail? The files are are binary, xlsb. Thanks very much for this tool. I just cleaned up a spreadhseet with Styles in it, of which 17 were being used.
Took around 1. cheers form Australia. Really appreciate your comment. Always glad to help Australians. All my Australian friends are really good people. He taught me how to breath properly after a wipeout in bigger waves in Fiji. Super cool guy and incredible surfer. He just helped me out of the goodness of his heart. Probably saved my life in the long run.
What goes around comes around. Hi XLG Thanks for an incredible tool — had a file with over 60k styles — 8 in use — a couple of seconds later a new clean file was saved — brilliant! Microsoft said I should use you. Considering the years of work that went into the 79 worksheet dating pre-Excel , I was extremely nervous. The program has features, lets you choose, and is awesome. All data is intact, formatting is exact.
Thank you so much. You should force all styles to Normal. It is particularly important for files that have been upgraded through multiple prior versions. There will be no loss in formatting, just a cleaner file. Used your SilverLight version to clean up our loan screening template which is the core of our loan origination operation.
Your utility completely solved our cell formatting error problem in seconds. It is brilliant. Great utility! This fixed my error lickity split! I never knew I had so many different formats in my workbook.
Thanks very much for developing this, and keeping it free! I tried but it does not work. Please make sure that the file you are trying to process has. xlsm extension — Open XML format. You are most likely trying to process.
xlsb file — a binary format. You can explicitly save your file as. xlsm and try again. If you try to use a file with wrong extension in the Silverlight app it will tell you right there and then that it is binary.
Please send me the file. It is either not true OpenXML file or is fully corrupted. I just sent you an e-mail. Please make sure your file is not password protected.
File open password encrypts file parts making them look like gibberish to the tool and may very well be the cause of the error message that you see. Hope this helps to resolve your issue. Per your advice, I removed my password before uploading my file to the tool. And then my issue is resolved. muchisimas gracias por la herramienta tienes 5 estrellas de calificacion, pude arreglar mi archivo. I thought all was lost with my too many cell formats death message until I found and downloaded this tool when nothing else worked and it cleaned the file in 5 seconds flat.
The best freeware ever! Why is it saying that the service is unavailable when I attempt to download the file XLCleanerDotNET4. Looks like they are killing original SkyDrive links since MS is renaming it to OneDrive. I will update if it does. Really appreciate the fact that you sent me a message. Thank you for replying. There is service interruption due to the conversion of the SkyDrive to OneDrive by Microsoft.
I checked and updated all links. I update my apps all the time to keep the algorithm current. My Silverlight version of the app is your safest alternative if something is down while Microsoft is finishing their conversion. If you are not downloading the tools from my site there is no guarantee that you are not getting a virus in your download or getting the latest version.
The alternate site that you provided in your reply is located in Moscow, Russia and looks very suspicious. Downloading executables from weird looking servers located in Russia, China, Korea, etc… is extremely unsafe.
I would be running Offline Windows Defender full scan option if I were you. OMG this tool is amazing, I am an bit of IT challenged person and I was struggling with files provided from an unknown source to me and was having a lot of issues trying to work with them, my job is going to become SO easy now. THANK YOU FOR THIS TOOL!!! Apparently they feel that using your tool is much simpler than actually programming a fix for it themselves… In any case, it worked great on several sheets that had massive style formatting issues yay for users formatting styles to infinity… , so just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for creating this!!
Worked great for the accounting employee that was having trouble with an Excel file used month over month. Thanks much! Only problem is…we cant anticipate what document they will need to run the tool on, and of course having to run it themselves is too much work. We would like to try some sort of scripting with this tool. Possibly batch file or VBS that we can run on their Excel Data drive and cleanup all excel documents in one swoop. Have you had any luck or experience with this?
This ask has been covered in XLBulkCleaner related post. ReadMe file contains detailed instructions. Monitored share sounds like a perfect fit for what you are trying to do.
Yes, if you read the update and comments to the BulkCleaner dedicated post you will see that I published subfolder version of the bulk cleaner.
There are even stats, so that you can establish safe number of files benchmarks. Does the ReadMe make sense? They should help you benchmark what is safe and what may push the buffer limits when it comes to the number of files and folder. Please post what your experience was like. Pingback: Clear cell styles but retain formatting. Thank you ever so much for this gift of an amazingly simple and effective tool. I sent the corrupted file home to fix it because we cannot install unauthorized software on our workstations.
Just downloaded the apps. I have been suffering from this demon for months and I now have the solution. Am I missing something? What OS are you using and what exactly did you do? Thank you so much for this utility program. I was getting mad trying to decipher the ultra techno solutions proposed by Microsoft guys and the lot. With your program just two clicks and problems solved. Hi, Just wanted to say a big thank you for posting this tool.
It just saved me weeks of work! Very much appreciated from a tech world newbie. WhenI try to access other files it works alright. Looks like something wrong with my file… but I dont know what to do. Can you please help. All sorted. The file I was trying to process was already open… duh!! I tried again using a very small file with the same result. Hi Dave, there have been 3 reasons for the behavior that you are describing: 1 file was already open in another program or was marked as read-only, 2 file was password protected, and 3 file size was extremely large — Silverlight has lower limit on the file sizes than normal 32 bit processes.
Hope this info helps. If the root cause for the SL app spinning during the scan is different I would like to get a sample to dig in deeper. Thanks for the prompt reply. The files are not open or password protected. I suspected it might be something to do with file size so I tested this. How do I get a sample to you so you can investigate further?
Thank you very much for providing this utility. We work with ridiculously large excel files that are added to from a number of different sources and they get out of hand very quickly.
Occasionally they have to be converted into an older Excel format. Thanks again!!! Very fast and very good, deleted 40, styles without any error in a second, did remain only 20 used styles. Thank you!! Thank you for the comment. You should consider forcing all styles to normal. You will not lose any formatting if you choose to force all styles to normal.
You will get the cleanest copy of the workbook. Custom styles are not necessary for normal usage. You may need them in some edge cases when they are leveraged in code, but that it very rare.
I have used your XLStyles tool for years and am deeply in your debt. I however am currently finding myself SOL. At work, I run Windows 7 and Office , and I have a file which just recently started giving me fits. It is a. xlsm to use the checker. I have tried different versions, different computers, different users, nothing. I am at my wits end, any ideas on what the heck I can do? Hi Bryce, this can happen for many reasons. Sometimes paths of links to other workbooks explode in length, sometimes named ranges mis-behave, sometimes chart data series grow out of control.
Trying to download but when I click on the link it just says that IE cannot display the page. Is this just me or is there an issue? Desperate to get this as I can barely do any work at the moment. Unless your ISP explicitly blocks your access to Microsoft OneDrive or App Store there should be no issues: the services are up. If you still have issues let me know what OS you are on and I will e-mail you appropriate app.
You can also try browser based Silverlight 5 version. SL5 app link is in the original and SL5 app specific post. they are password protected. Thank you in advance and with kindest regards, Sun. Their internals are not accessible to my apps. Even if I know the password to the files and I can forward to you to try? I have tried all methods online but I am not tech-equipped enough to understand half of what was suggested. Can the files be opened? If not, it is file corruption.
Even a single missing or extra byte in the encrypted file can make it completely unrecoverable. This has nothing to do with Excel, but rather the OS or external app like in your case corrupting the file. You may try disc recovery tools.
Love this program for accuracy efficiency and ease of use. I had an experience where a bad style was propagated to MANY Excel files! I would like to use XLStylesTool utility. Is it possible to download it without using an MS account. More specifically I do have a MS account but I do not want to associate my PC logon to my MS account. I have no need of the cloud and no other devices to link.
What issue exactly do you have with accessing what version of the app? All links and sites are up. Which link exactly do you have a problem with: original winforms app, win 8. It works now. Sir, thank you very much for building this tool. A life saver!!!! Definitely a keeper! Hi — I love this tool!
Quick question, when I check all the boxes, will this change any formulas or links to external workbooks within my workbook? Thanks so much! Everything will remain intact including all cell formatting. The tool simply removes bad styles and bad named ranges. First post clean up file save further optimizes file structure making file smaller leaving all content the way it was. Excel is really good at optimizing workbooks. Especially latest versions. What exactly are you looking for?
Do I need to install the Excel Hotfix or has that been included in subsequent Microsoft updates since the Hotfix was issued? Even with the fix all files need to be cleaned up. Thanks, XLGeek, for the tools and your timely responses to follow-up questions MS Support could learn a few things from you …. Your program does something in the background, for my document still looks the same after applying the you solver. Important thing is that the too many styles error is resolved.
Many thanks! Glad it worked. Style is not equal cell format. Think of cell style property collection as an appendix: a rudimentary part that can get inflamed.
By running my tool you just emptied inflamed appendix in your file. This is the best analogy that I can come up with at this point. There is nothing going on in the background. Thanks for providing this tool. I thought for sure doing this in VBA would work, however, the VBA approach seemed not able to get to a level within Excel that it had the correct access.
Your tool removed all the extra junk and put the default Cell Styles back to what you would expect if you created a blank workbook. I used your tool earlier today and commented. I use PowerQuery to pull data from other Excel files which reside on a SharePoint server. Recently I tried to load a SharePoint List via PowerQuery with no luck. svc file which I believe is what the Navigator needs to display the Lists on the server.
I have no idea what to tell a server admin to look for that is missing. Thanks a million for the XLStylesTool! Hi Marty, if you have central administration access can you please check to see whether REST access to lists is enabled? Love this tool. I deal with so many Franken-books that combine multiple worksheets from multiple workbooks and they inevitably become corrupted.
If you leave out a collection jar, I would gladly make a financial contribution to it considering how much time and headache this tool has saved me. Hello THANK YOU a lot I used this tool today I had Styles Max ID and Styles Node Count before on a 10MB xlsx file.
It has come back to 0 styles Very great gk Thank you again. I think it was because one of the excels had far too many formats, probably because i kept increasing and decreasing decimals and percentages. Both docs had multiple tabs with many different formatting applied.
I was told by my co-workers that the only solution was to copy each tab into a fresh document which would take an extremely long time. I did an online search and found your tool then told my help desk that this was a possible solution.
They downloaded it for me and I ran it just now. Cleaned both files which took only seconds and the error is gone. I can copy and move files as before! This is a great program- many kudos to everyone that worked on this!
The download link is broken for XLCleanerDotNET4. Seems to work for me and couple of people I asked to click on it to test.
OneDrive may have had service interruption. Thank you very much, the regular XLCleaner works just fine on at least one excel file of mine. I normally do not comment on this stuff, but this is amazing tool!
As I have mac, and did not get the webpage to work properly, I used wineskin client to open the exe file and it worked like a charm. Does this download still exist? Sergei, you are a lifesaver. I ran into this problem 4 days ago with a ton of complicated ETL Requirements documents that had tabs and hundreds of thousands of cells, each with their own formatting.
We had templates and hundreds of documents that were all corrupt. My template had styles in it! I am currently going through and cleaning everything up.
Thank you SO much for building this awesome utility. The hyperlink to: XLCleanerDotNET4. The share is up. zip file. Check your browser settings and make sure it is not blocking the download.
Can you download other zip files? My office blocked access to the site where the download seems to be located. Is there any other location where I can download the file? This is unusual. The URL points to secure Microsoft OneDrive location. What operating system are you on? This tool is awesome!!! worked like a charm. no other solution was able to solve my issue without spending on it hours of manual removal of styles, references, etc.
Great work guys!!! This is great! I had a really old spreadsheet that had become quite the hog. It took an 18MB file down to 10MB without losing any data or used style information.
It must be doing something! My file loads faster and performs better on complex calculations. Worst of all, it corrupts other workbooks as well if I have them open with corrupted one. My current setting is Windows 7 with MS Excel I have saved the corrupted file and uploaded it.
I thought you might want to take a look. Your file is actually clean. If you close all Excel instances and open this file or any other cleaned up file in the brand new Excel instance you should see no extra styles. If you open a workbook with custom styles and close it and then open another file, custom style definitions form the first workbook may get retained in memory.
Excel does that for efficiency — it already did the work to construct style objects in memory and assumes that you may want to re-use them. Styles imply consistent formatting, so this logic does make sense. The real world impact is somewhat different. Thank you very much. Was afraid that I had to redo weeks worth of work as my document suddenly did not want to change font, insert lines etc.
I could also not copy any worksheets into the document. Used XLCleanerDotNet4. This is Jenny from Shanghai China, our whole team is greatly benefited from your excellent tool, but right now we met a problem when using it, because of the system upgrade from OS Could you pls.
give me some tips or guide on this problem? Really appreciate your effort on this tool! What is OS Sounds like you may be on Mac. You will have to take it up with Apple and find out if they killed Silverlight support. Please share here if you find a way to keep it working through Mac OS support. You say that you are from China, but your comment came from an ISP registered to Apple in California. Hi Geek, Yes, the system is Mac OS, we located in China sharing the ISP WW.
The lower version of Mac OS could run Silverlight, but new version of OS could not. Hi Jenny, you may have to start with IT and Mac support. Can you run. Net Core apps on your Macs?
It may be an option for Macs going forward if SL support is truly getting killed. Hello, I was just wondering if there are any software license terms or a EULA that governs use of this software. I understand it is free but was curious if any open source or other license terms apply. What version are you using: SL5,. Net or Windows Store App? The core cleaning algorithm is patent protected to prevent reverse engineering attempts by the people that are trying to profit from the unfortunate situation.
Use would be in a commercial setting, so I am trying to identify the EULA or software license terms covering this software. There do not appear to be any readily available on this site or in the installer. Is use in a commercial setting no redistribution, no modification permitted, understanding the software is provided without warranties?
Hi Matt, if you are not charging a fee for using the app or reverse engineer it then you are ok. XLStyles set of apps is intended for individual personal information worker use. These individuals can be part of an organization. Thank you for the clarification! An employee would be using it, but no fees will be charged related to the tool and no reverse engineering will occur. Is there a way to use the 8.
Loading from the app store is the best and most secure way to distribute the app. Can you let your user use Hyper-V, non-domain joined VM with access to the store? Or can you setup a standalone VM? If there is one user that needs XLStyles Tool there will be more in your org for sure. Hello XLGeek! Now we also have an AppStore blocked, Win10 environment. Unfortunately we are unable to give our end users the option that you suggested above.
Using either the 8. Thank You for your time! Hi Jeff, I think MS is working on the corporate versions of the app store where you as an IT admin will be able to whitelist approved apps. You should check with your account team. App Store is an ideal way for me to distribute the apps, keep them current and ensure their security.
Side loading is not a good route. Have you tried changing GP to let them i. Also, what is the rationale behind disabling the app store? All apps are reviewed and heavily scrutinized before they are published by MS. Hi XLGeek — great tool, but we have the Windows app store locked down for security reasons. Windows 10 should totally work with administrator assignment. This tool worked wonderfully and was super easy to use — bless you XLGeek! yet again this saves a spreadsheet.
cleaned up both spreadsheets and now all ok again. Is there a version for Excel ? Thanks for this application. We have noticed in our use of this app that it requires a constant internet connectivity for it to run. The Security teams have hesitated on widespread use of the tool and would like to understand the need for internet access. Could you elaborate? It is clearly described in the Privacy section in the settings.
I can create ad free app. How much would you be willing to pay for it? Hi, i would like to install the tool on my companies computer since I need it to clean a file we are currently working on.
The IT department says it would allow me to install the XL Styles Tool with a EXE-file but they can not give me access to the Windows App Store. Is there a possibility to install the rool without the App Store? Best regards MAx. Windows Apps store is by far much more secure way to distribute and seamlessly update apps. Thank you so much for this lifesaver, it has helped me so many times! One thing that others might be wondering is, how to actually use the tool. All you do is, after downloading the XLStylesTool.
exe file, you double click the. Reblogged this on lifopro and commented: This worked like a charm! My excel file had crashed multiple times and was driving me to the point of giving up for the day! any way to run against multiple files, or run via command line?

Key Findings California voters have now received their mail ballots, and the November 8 general election has entered its final stage. These are among the key findings of a statewide survey on state and national issues conducted from October 14 to 23 by the Public Policy Institute of California: Many Californians have negative perceptions of their personal finances and the US economy.
Forty-seven percent say that things in California are going in the right direction, while 33 percent think things in the US are going in the right direction; partisans differ in their overall outlook.
Partisans are deeply divided in their choices. Fewer than half of likely voters say the vote outcome of Propositions 26, 27, or 30 is very important to them. Sixty-one percent say the issue of abortion rights is very important in their vote for Congress this year; Democrats are far more likely than Republicans or independents to hold this view. Republicans are far less likely than Democrats and independents to hold this positive view.
There is rare partisan consensus on one topic: majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and independents are pessimistic that Americans with different political views can still come together and work out their differences. About four in ten or more California adults and likely voters approve of US Senator Dianne Feinstein and US Senator Alex Padilla.
These approval ratings vary across partisan groups. Approval of the state legislature is higher than approval of the US Congress.

We have a very large workbook with cells formatted a million different ways, apparently. When I moved some sheets from another workbook into this one, my formatting disappeared.
Do you know a way to fix this? Or work around it? Your utility sounds like my best option, if I can get it to work. Hi Teresa, there may be couple of reasons for this behavior: a the file is not in OpenXML format: i. xlsb extension. xlsm if file contains macros to address this. b the file has password to open it. You can temporarily remove the password to open the file. Read-only password is OK.
c one or more of the document parts are corrupted. This can only be determined by disassembling the file which I can help with. Sometimes it is possible to fix this by tweaking part contents by hand.
If none of the suggestions above work for you I would be more than happy to look at your file. You can delete all numeric data from it. It is an. xls file. I opened it and saved it as an. xlsx, ran the utility, and then checked the file. The formatting is still missing. When I check Cell Styles, I still see all the individual styles that have been added.
I did notice that when I saved the file as an. xlsx, the size dropped from over 2, KB to only KB. I realize that the. xlsx format uses less space, but this appears to be a bigger drop than is typical. Your utility works beautifully for us.
I want to thank you for creating it, and for putting comments about it out there on so many tech blogs so that I could find it! I work in an environment that is a mix of Office , , and So even though I and my most immediate coworkers are using Office , we have to save our Excel files at a lower version in order to share them with the rest of our department and the organization.
We are also currently in the middle of a major system upgrade that will affect every department, so we are currently creating and sharing much larger workbooks than we have in the past.
The file crash which sent me to your blog involved a workbook that we have been using and updating for well over a year now. By the time it crashed, there were more than 9, different cell format styles.
I believe that the problem had been building up for a while, because your utility shows me that a previous version of the file from late February has different styles. The most insidious part of this is that Excel will act like everything is perfectly fine and normal when you save and close. No error messages, and nothing to indicate that anything is wrong. The problem comes when you try to reopen the file.
I had the opportunity to use your utility again this morning. A coworker had a very small, simple but important! workbook crash on her just this morning, all because she copied and pasted a small amount of data from another workbook where the styles had gotten out of control. Luckily, she came to someone who was involved with troubleshooting my particular file crash, and so the problem eventually came to my attention and I was able to help her.
Thanks again, XLGeek! Keep up the good work! Pingback: How to use XLStylesTool resources XLGeek's space. About 4 years ago my company all got dual monitors, and everyone found that opening Excel files in separate processes would allow them to have different files on different windows.
Everyone loved this… It took about a year before we started noticing that some xls files would lose all formatting. Our fix at the time was to migrated to Excel ! But, within 6 more months even those started to have issues… It was at this time that I found out about styles corruption! We learned that if you take a corrupt Excel file and copy a single cell even an empty one and then paste into another Excel file even a brand new one ALL corrupt formatting would transfer over!
Now, this only seemed to happen when the files were open in separate processes. For the past 2 years or so I have used ASAP Utilities for their capability of cleaning extra styles; however, in the past 6 months I realized two things. It took a very long time on large Excel files. It missed some styles…. xml file, I could see some styles were being completely missed! Net, and found that nothing that I used could even see these nodes with those specific attributes.
So the next step was to look into XML parsing and doing this myself… Something that I was on my way to doing but always ran into issues.
Different Excel developer forums had never heard of this issue — one person going as far as saying that if I had 40, styles I set some sort of record! I had all but given up when I found this site by accident the other day. This tool is not only amazing at finding all styles, it does so extremely quickly. Sergeig, you are awesome to provide this utility free of charge to help reduce this seriously annoying problem. Your name will be praised in my department for saving us time, and preventing people from having to re-do work because of lost formatting.
Robert, THANK YOU for your comment! I habitually open multiple instances in excel so I can see them across my monitors, and never thought anything about copy-pasting between them. Pingback: MSFT released hot fix for Excel custom styles duplication XLGeek's space.
Hi, We have a large, ~20 tab, Excel xlsm file. Periodically, we have had a problem with cells randomly changing into dates. It happened again today, although the formatting change only affected headers this time. Finally did some research and discovered the problem with Excel Styles. After running the utility, the file no longer shows any styles brought in from other spreadsheets.
So I manually corrected the headers and reran the utility again. Thank you for making this available. Cell formatting will not be altered at all. That is the objective of my app: get rid of bad styles, stabilize the file, but keep all formats intact. Please make sure you don't have any Excel add-ins installed. These usually are responsible for re-introducing bad styles back into the cleaned up workbooks and messing up cell formatting.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience. I have same issue but my file is passwod protected. How I can remove password to use your utility.
Protected for viewing VBA project even if it is digitaly signed will not have any impact on how the utility works. As long as the file is in Open XML format. My utility will work only if your file is in Open XML format with. xlsx or.
