excel file is damaged


I stoped my workflow with the “cancle all running nodes” button, while it was writing into an Excel file. The Excel file is damaged now and I can not open it. Is there any way to repair it? The file is really important…

Thanks in advance

Greetings, David

Hi @DvdFrcK,

did you use the excel sheet appender node or the excel writer node? :thinking:

You could try the MS Repair Options


Hi AnotherFraudUser,

I used the sheet appender node. The repair couldn’t safe it, but I found an old backup and rebuilt it.
I guess the lesson is: “Never stop your worklfow while writing data” :sweat_smile:

Nevertheless, thanks for your help!


Or “Do your backup on a regular basis” :smiley:
