Default My excel doc in is now a picture. How do I get my excel doc back

I have created an excel document in Word. It is now showing up as a picture
where I am no longer able to open it. How do I get the document back to an
excel document where it can be opened?

Thank you.

Hi CC,

Was there an error message associated with the changed status? If so, closing the document without saving, then re-starting Windows
may fix it. Otherwise, you may have to recreate the embedded worksheet. In that regard, it's probably best to have a stand-alone
copy of the worksheet, then copy & paste it into Word when you're done. That way, you'll be able to recover from any format changes
(accidental or otherwise) more easily next time they occur.
