What is XLR file?

Microsoft Works uses XLR file format for storing spreadsheets and charts. Microsoft Works is similar to Microsoft Office in a number of ways but has a limited functionality as compared to Microsoft Office and it is currently discontinued by Microsoft.

The extension of XLR is old file format and currently it is replaced by XLS and XLSX as Microsoft Office is considered as standard for commercial and industrial document processing. Having limited functionality the files stored in XLR format have smaller size as compared to XLS or XLSX file format having same data. Currently it can be opened using MS Excel.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the XLR file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the XLR file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the XLR file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the XLR file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the XLR file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
