Problem with Excel files in Trados

I recently started using Trados . But since yesterday, I face problems when I try to generate the target file when dealing with Excel files (it worked perfectly before and I haven't changed anything in the settings!).

The problem is that when I try to generate the file, Trados tells me that the files has been generated. But when I try to open it in Excel, the file displayed is illegible (onlty made of codes!).

Could someone help me solve this problem?

Thank you!
