excel 2007 stops responding


M

MarcDS

Hello,

I use EXCEL 2007 (UK) on Vista Home Premium (HP portable); when I open an
EXCEL-sheet created with EXCEL 2003 (at the office), everything works
allright (EXCEL opens in Compatibility mode - read only). However when I try
to save the file (SAVE AS...) EXCEL hangs (does not respond any more; the
screen gets" frozen"). Same behavior when I try to save a newly created 2007
EXCEL file as an 2003 EXCEL file.

So : no problems only when I use newly created 2007-EXCELfiles.


Somebody has an idea ? (I allready did a repair of office 2007)

Thanks

The file should not be read only in compatibility mode. It will be if it is
on CD but you should save this to your hard drive before opening.

Do you have Norton Anti-virus or something? Some virus scanners stop Excel
opening quickly and 'Not responding' appear very quickly on the title bar.

I use ESET Nod 32 on Vista and have used AVG Free edition...both fine with
Office

you 're right about read only in compatibilty mode (my mistake); but I don't
see the relationship between excel and a virus-scanner.
By the way : the "stop responding"-problem also happens in WORD 2007 (now
and then)

Each time there is file activity in most applications and certainly Office
applications your virus scanner *should* fire up to check it's not a rogue
file. This is *often* an issue with slow operation
