Excel 'Not Responding'


Z

Zagnuts

We migrated to Office 2007 6 months ago and all of a sudden I have a user
that when ever she opens a certain document, previously created in Office
2003, she makes a change to a cell and Excel hangs.

I've found tons of information surrounding this exact problem on the
internet but nobody has comeup with a fix.

Event Viewer:
EventID: 5000 - EventType officelifeboathang, P1 excel.exe, P2
12.0.6331.5000, P3 oart.dll, P4 12.0.6214.1000, P5 NIL, P6 NIL, P7 NIL, P8
NIL, P9 NIL, P10 NIL.

Has anyone found the fix for this problem? And that shouldn't include
recreating every failed doc.! :)

Thanks

I don't do 2007, but a couple of thoughts....

Depending on how important the file is to you........try "converting" the
file to 2007, by copy and pasting sheets over into a new 2007 workbook. This
has worked for me on other occasions when the Ether Gods took a dislike to me.

Also, there may be incompatible "Change Event" macro that is causing the
problem...try opening with macros disabled.

I am having the same problem with excel 2007 not responding. When I tried to
cut and paste to a new sheet, it was unable to convert my column widths from
the default size, even though I clicked in the far upper left corner to copy
the entire sheet. Also I would like to know how to disable the macros.

I have the same issue. I've been using Office07 for months now and the
problem started about a week ago. I have an Excel doc (500k) that I've been
working with for several months with out a problem. All of the sudden if I
try to cut and past a single cell it takes approx. 5-8 minutes to complete.
If I CNTL/ALT/Del it shows Excel not responding. Just to note this problem
only exists on this particular spreadsheet, others seem to work fine. Mcafee
says the file is virus free.
