Error When Opening Excel File: Unreadable Content: Removed Part: /xl/tables/table.xml part with XML error. (Table)


Thanks in advance for trying to solve this issue with me.
When I open my Excel File I get the following error:
Excel found unreadable content in 'WorkBook.xlsx'. Do you want to recover...
Then I choose for yes and the 'repairs' screen is shown with following message:
Removed Part: /xl/tables/table.xml part with XML error. (Table) Load error. Line 1, column 188.
If I take a look at the log file it shows me this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="true"?>
-<recoveryLog xmlns=""><logFileName>error012600_01.xml</logFileName><summary>Errors were detected in file '...\WorkBook.xlsx'</summary>-<removedParts summary="Following is a list of removed parts:"><removedPart>Removed Part: /xl/tables/table.xml part with XML error. (Table) Load error. Line 1, column 188.</removedPart></removedParts></recoveryLog>
What could be a possible reason why this error is shown, it worked fine last week but since other data is in the list, it gives me this error, before I'm building up my WorkSheet I don't know exactly wich data is going to be in the cells, could it be that some data makes the Excel file corrupt, is there a way to allow all kinds of characters in the WorkSheet?

Please try the latest version of ClosedXML (v0.87.1 at this stage). If you still experience the issue, log it on the new GitHub page.

I just made an Excel file with just one field on cell A1 with in there a text value "TEST" and I'm still getting this error?

If more information is needed I can supply that.
