Fix Grammatical Errors in "Couldn't Open the Workbook"

Please fix the grammatical errors in the following message.

"We're sorry, we couldn't open your workbook... Do you want to try and open this file in Excel?"

The first sentence is a "comma splice." It should be "We're sorry. We couldn't open your workbook."

The last sentence has "try and," which is a common mistake. The sentence should read "Do you want to try to open this file in Excel?" In other words, instead of using "try and," use "try to."
