Open the file and then select "Unhide" from the "Window" menu.<

Excel opens but the file does not load. If the file loaded, then I could
"unhide" it. If I open Excel, I can drag and drop the file into Excel, or
double-click it and it loads. If Excel is not loaded and I double-click the
spreadsheet, Excel loads, but leaves me with a blank workspace and all the
menu items are greyed out, including "hide/unhide", i.e., the spreadsheet
does not load.
