I acidentally lost my whole database and asked microgaming to send me my hand history
so they sent me a bunch of .XLS files and now I can't import because HEM doesn't read this format I guess

there's anyway to do it ? if I convert to another format or something ? how is the easy way to do it ?

Do the .xml file contain the handhistories in their original formatting?
Or are they now in a completely different format?

they are different I guess
I took a picture and I can send you via email if you want
this is how it looks:

No, HM don't recognize such format.
Ask room support for "text" version (if it exists).

HoldemManager can't import that formatting.
Nor is it possible to ever import that,... or 'convert' it to a importable format.

Because the spreadsheet only shows how much you won, but doesn't list crucial information like:
-who were the other players at the table
-what were their stack sizes
-what were their actions

I have exactly the same problem as OP. Have you developed somekind of a program that makes the importing of those files possible? I have HM1.

They do not contain enough information.Please see Pat's post above.
