Today I got a strange error with my workbook. When I opened my workbook in
excel 2007 I lost all of my cell formats.
When I opened the same workbook using Excel 2003 I got an exception with
message "Too many different cell formats". I realized that the exception
will be thrown if the workbook has more than 4000 unique cell formats.
But I am sure I don't have those many cell formats in my workbook. I really
need to get my cell format back. Is there any way to get the cell/sheet
format? I don't mind if I lose some of the cell formats during my recovery

Any help would be appreciated,
