opening an excel 2007 worksheet in excel 2013 without losing conditional formatting


New Member
I have a spreadsheet created in excel 2007 and want to open it in excel 2013 . But I get this message: "We found a problem with some content in excel 2013. Do you want us to recover as much as we can ? If you trust the source of this workbook, click " YES " .
Clicking "YES " , the spreadsheet opens with some features missing, mainly the conditional formatting which completely lost.
Any help will be appreciated .

Sound like some corruption in the XML definition of the file, rather then a version issue.
Opening the file in 2007 version works?
