Do you select the correct character set or language? Try to open the file in Notepad and make sure that it's actually English.

Also please don't post a question twice.

Hi and welcome,

It's possible your file is corrupted.

It's a strange idea to save in xls format, if your file was in ods format, you will can recuperate data, but here...

Your file is totally corrupted and has no user data.

Follow the instructions for recovering .doc files in [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete AOO temporary files for detailed instructions on how to

a) use Previous Versions (W7 and later) to recover previous versions of the file (is there something similar on MacOS and Linux?);

b) recover your file as it was when you last opened or saved it, or as it was when it was last saved with AutoRecovery;

c) find previous versions of the file in the folder it is located in, but which have since been deleted.

As it is a .xls file there are no temporary files to recover.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
