Need help recovering a corrupted MATHCAD 15 file

I have been working on this since last two days and just completed my work and then suddenly Mathcad crashes and gives me an error that the contents of the file have been corrupted.

I tried everything, used the recovery file also but cant recover. I just dont know what to do.

I would really appreciate if anyone can help me with this.

Thanks

P.S. the file is in attachment.

Did you use Stuart's recovery worksheet?

No, just deleted the lines throwing the error with a simple text editor ;-)

Neat trick. I have just attempted it and got the file to open. So you just delete the code containing the errors and simply save?

Yes, I deleted every line beginning with

<box left="1.5" top="0.75" width=........

and I have no idea what I have done by doing so, whats missing now in the file and why the error was thrown ;-)

I just noticed that near the end of the file there is an area with no expressions inside, so possibly expressions placed there cause the error. I also noticed that when I open the file in Mathcad and resave it, it nearly doubles its size of the file.

Its quite possible that Stuarts sheet can deal better with that file.

Re: Need help recovering a corrupted MATHCAD 15 file

The Box line appears to relate to the show border option on the <properties> tab, but when I have set this in MC 15 it doesn't write the HTML code in the same way.

Quite how this code was written is unclear.
