Excel 2010 :: Keeps Crashing And Not Responding Or Saving?

Mar 9, 2012

I have a genuine copy of office pro 2010. All works fine except excel!

It seems to be mainly on one workbook I have brought over from open office and on a mac! It wont save due to errors it won't tell you about? It then stops responding or crashes? Wont save as etc....

I have repaired, I have even deleted and downloaded a new office pro genuine and installed and doing the same so i guess it has to be the file?

BUT it seems to work on another laptop we have, same file, same excel????

The only thing i seem to be able to find is in the permissions it has an "unknown account"? Also under the file menu where it allows you to check the file it states something about conditional formatting i have used and not being compatible BUT i cant for the life of me find that in the menus to get rid?

Excel 2010 :: Crashing When Pasting Formulas As Values

Nov 8, 2013

I recently received an .xls book which I then saved as .xlsx (I'm using 2010). There are just under 8,000 rows and 20 columns. File Size 1MB.

The only formulas in the sheet are the ones in a column which I inserted and copied down for all 8,000 rows. Nothing too complicated: no arrays or anything. The sheet calculates fine.

I am simply trying to copy and paste these formulas as values (into the same cells), though at every attempt Excel crashes. I tried on smaller sets of the column and just got it to work for a few hundred rows, though it struggles with any more than that.

I opened a different workbook of mine, and tried the same operation on twice as many cells containing complicated, lengthy array formulas and the action completed instantly.

There is no Conditional Formatting in the book, no code, no 'last cell' issue, no Named Ranges, no external links.

I have even copied the data to a new workbook, then copied the text of just one of the formulas over into this book, added an equals sign, copied down and recalculated, then tried to paste as values again. Still crashes.


=IF(AND(N3>1,ROWS($1:1)<>MATCH(M3,$M$3:$M$7979,0)),"Exact Duplicate","")

is far more resource-hungry than I thought, though if that were the case, wouldn't the issue be during calculation (which, as I said, is fine) and not during a paste attempt? No, it can't be this.

Excel 2010 :: Unfilter Workbook Before Saving?

Feb 16, 2014

In order to unfilter a workbook before saving, that is often left by the users with filters on, I use the following code:


The code works just perfect for a workbook that has a table in a normal range of cells.

If I insert a table (using Office 2010 and later option), the code simply doesn't work.

Excel 2010 :: Saving And Emailing Macros

Aug 26, 2013

How/ where to save macros. If I save a macro "normally" ("in this workbook") then it only applies to that one file, right? And I can't use it in any new files.

So what do I do if I want a macro I can use in "all" my Excel files?

And can I email a file containing a macro to a colleague, so he can work on the file, using the macro too?

I ask, because I've had trouble with this in the past (tho in MS Word) where I couldn't get the macro to be emailed along with the file...

Also - how can I get an .xls file with a macro to work in newer versions of Excel? And can I use Excel 2010 to save a file with a macro in an .xls format, so it can be opened in older Excel versions too?

Excel 2010 :: Saving Camera Tool Snapshot?

Jun 18, 2013

In Excel 2010, I used the camera tool to take a snapshot of a selction of cells. How do I save the snapshot only as a JPG or GIF file?

I know that there are programs outside of Excel that can take snapshots or print screens, but I need to accomplish it using the camera tool so the snapshot is the exact selection everytime. Is the excel snapshot temporarily saved somewhere on my computer where I can access it?

Excel 2010 :: Auto Lock Selected Range Of Cells After Saving?

Jul 17, 2014

I have a log that is used to keep when items are due. I do not want my coworkers to delete items once they have been entered and saved. So the excel sheet I am trying to make has certain cells in a range that I want to autolock after saving. For example: the cell range is G3:J402. I enter Customer Name in Cell G3 and the Date the job was received in H3. Once i enter that information I want it locked once i save it. Then later on, my coworker completes the job and enters the date in I2. And again once she saves this she shouldn't be able to edit this information. Then again another day she comes and enters the date on I3 when the product has been shipped out.

While all of the above activity is going on, new customers are continuously being in added in G4, G5....

Also, if possible the date in the H range should be the date items are entered in G (this would be a nice added feature). I've included the file for review. I'm running Microsoft Excel 2010

Excel 2010 :: Saving File Then Discovering It Has Not Saved In Latest Version

Mar 5, 2013

I am using excel 2010 on windows 8. I load a file which has been sent to me via e-mail and save it with an upgraded name, I then do a large amount of data input and save the file again, I do this regularly and even test load it at times to check it has saved, finally I save and close the file and then on reloading I discover the version I have is the first one I saved! all the work I have done on it has disappeared! I also sometimes find random .tmp files with non-sensical names in the folder to which I have saved, but I do not have the rights to open these .tmp files.

Excel 2010 :: Saving File To Network Drive - Amend Date

Jan 29, 2014

I am currently creating a simple macro to save out files to a specific folder on one of our network drives. Since we will be doing this often I would like to amend the date the the file name saved for sorting/organizational purposes.

Unfortunately I have been running into a few issues, this is what I have tried so far but keep getting a SaveAs error:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation TeamDC Tools" &
"Copy DC Conversion WB_2014 " & Format(Date, "yyyymmdd") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlNormal

I have also tried:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation Team
DC ToolsCopy DC Conversion WB.2014_" & _
Format(Now(), "YYYYMMDDhhmmss") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=56

But still no avail. I believe it may have something to do with the file format but I am not sure. I am running Excel 2010.

I have tried hard to find other solutions with links at the following places but not exactly what I'm desiring:Auto lock cells after data entry when file saved...

Auto lock cells after data entered and SAVED.

Auto Lock Selected Range of Cells After Saving

I should also mention that most solutions either provide for locking/unlocking of all cells but not a selected range. Or they provide for locking/unlocking of a selected range but not for a specific sheet or not after you have saved the workbook.

This is unique in that I'd like it to autolock after i press the save button for a SPECIFIC number of cells. I just wanted to clarify as to not make others think that I haven't used the search function.

Excel 2010 :: Check If Cell Not Blank Upon Saving Or Closing And Color Code To Show Blanks

Looking forward VBA coding for:

Could be that one or more of these row cells are left blank by mistake.

Excel Crashing On End Sub Line?

Aug 11, 2012

I made an Excel/VBA solution for a company in which userforms were created and manipulated programatically, including their code modules. They would then be deleted so next time they were created there wasn't naming errors.

They acted as data input forms which would have an input control for each column of data on the sheet.

There was one method which would create the form and then call another to add code to it's code module.

In one scenario, if the user would do data entry on one sheet and then immediately after do data entry on the same sheet using the data entry forms.

When this occurred something peculiar happened, after the method which added the code to the code module executed excel would crash. By putting a MsgBox to pop up just before the End Sub statement and having another in the calling function immediately after the procedure call. It became evident that the sub adding code to the module was not exiting correctly and causing the program to crash.

In essence the program was crashing when End Sub was executed

Excel Crashing When Copying Tab?

Apr 28, 2014

My Excel file crashes whenever I attempt to make a copy of a tab, within the same workbook, and then save. This problem only occurs with its existing naming convention. In other words, the file crashes with the name "Cash Flow Model 5 Year Plan". If I rename the file to "Copy of Cash Flow Model 5 Year Plan" then it works perfectly, with no issues copying a tab within the workbook. The file size is not too large, as this issue never occurred when the model was twice the size.

Outlook Keep Crashing Via Excel?

Nov 21, 2013

I have to send out emails to all of my staff with their new login ID's and PW's and other misc information one by one to each user. Reason being is that all ID's, PW's and other information pertains to that specific user and includes sensitive information.

I know there's a VBA script I can use to send out the emails, but the script I found online keeps crashing my Outlook and requires it to go through my personal inbox which takes 15 minutes every time.

I have the pertinent information split up into different columns/cells.

A1: email
A2: subject
A3: body (ID, PW, verbage)
A4: attachment link (if required)
A5: if I could have Outlook automatically stamp each email with my signature that'd be awesome as well.

Excel Crashing When Viewing VBA Code

Dec 27, 2012

I have a semi-large macro which I have been creating on and off for a few months now. The file will fundementally be used by people with little knowledge of Excel, hence I force the user down certain alleyways depending on what they have previously done with the aid of veryhidden sheets and such like.

Upon opening the file, some code is ran to hide all of the sheets in the file apart from the home page. This is a pain when I am still working on the code though, so a portion of it is commented out. When I uncomment the "on error.. - next sheetIn" so that the file runs as it would be used, the code itself works perfectly and hides all of the sheets apart from the home page. Unfortunately, I can't then view the VBA code as it instantly crashes Excel (and any other Excel file I currently have open). This happens whether I click the Visual Basic button in the Excel ribbon, whether I try and access it through the design mode on a control, pressing Alt+F11 or even opening up another spreadsheet containing code and attempting to click on the broken macro after viewing the VBA code for the working spreadsheet.

Sub workbook_open()
'stop screen flickering whilst running the code
Application.ScreenUpdating = False


The only way currently to get back into the code is to open the spreadsheet up with macros disabled and recomment the code, but obviously this loses the function of the code.

Excel Crashing On Refresh Of Data

Sep 12, 2013

I have a report that uses external data to feed a Pivot Table.

I noticed that the data source had been turned off automatically by Excel and turned it on and added the file location to the trust centre.

I also set the data to refresh when the workbook is opened.

I saved the file and then tried to refresh the data which caused Excel to crash. Of course now I can't open the file either because when it attempts to refresh itself on opening that causes Excel to crash as well.

Addendum: I have removed the Trusted Location which has caused Excel to disable the connection again. This has solved the crash on opening but I still can't refresh the data.

Function Code Crashing Excel

Apr 16, 2014

I've been trying to put together a function in excel which will make it simpler and a bit clearer to produce the coefficients of trend lines in cells. I want to produce an excel function like SLOPE and INTERCEPT but for exponential, power and logarithmic trendlines. For example, I can produce the coefficients for an exponential trendline like this:


Ideally, I want to be able to do so without the need to convert the terms with LN function, and be able to replace it with a new function that deals directly with an X Range and a Y range

I've produced the following code:

Function PowerSlope(YRange As Range, XRange As Range)

For Loops = 1 To YRange.Count
YRange.Value2(Loops, 1) = Log(YRange.Value2(Loops, 1))
Next Loops

PowerSlope = Application.WorksheetFunction.Slope(YRange, XRange)
End Function

However, this causes Excel to crash and shut down (not the macro itself, but the entire program). I can't even get the function to run to a break point in the first line before the crash happens. I'm able to remove the FOR ... NEXT loop and use the function to directly return the result of the linear slope, so I'm confident the issue is not in that part of the code.

Excel Crashing When Inserting / Deleting New Columns?

Excel 2007 :: Crashing Using Named Range In Conditional Formatting?

Feb 10, 2014

I have one simple (but large table). It has dates across the top (formatted in hh format). I would like the associated table to format according to the day and also to format differently when there is a public holiday. So I have built a table with the holidays and named the relevant cells as "Holiday_Valid".

I have the following formula in the conditional formatting;


Where D11 has the current day in question and Holiday_Valid is a list of public holidays. Since there is a cell for each hour of each day I am using "int()".

There is a second conditional format to format Sundays differently as below;

[Code] .....

My problem is that these both work well....but then after a few minutes the whole sheet crashes with those dreaded "Trying to recover your data" and "Excel will restart" etc.

I have removed references to named ranges and so far - so good....but this means putting the validation table in the same sheet as the main table. In the past I have been able to use named ranges (albeit not in such convoluted formulae), but now it seems that it is not working any longer.

When I open the recovered sheet, all the conditional formatting has been removed and the message from the repairs is that there was some invalid conditional formatting.

Extensive web searches did show some issues with conditional formatting using names ranges....especially with frozen panes....which I need use with a sheet this big.

Crashing Between 2003 & 2007

Before Print Event Not Responding

Jan 9, 2007

I have a Word document that I'd like to print first, when I click Print on a specific worksheet (not on Print of other worksheets in the workbook, just the one). The worksheet contains customer information and is essentially a cover page for the Word document. the Word document already prints in reverse order, as does the worksheet, so I just need the Word doc to print prior to the worksheet/cover, to give me the total print package in the correct order. I've tried using the following code in the Sheet object for the worksheet in question;

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforePrintEvent()
Dim appWd As Word.Application
Set appWd = CreateObject("Word.Application")
appWd.Visible = True 'Change to False when code is good
'Open Doc
appWd.Documents.Open Filename:="S:BryanQuoting ToolsP'Binder Leading Pages.doc"

Crashing Error/sheets Add

May 2, 2007

I have a large model, and it sometimes starts having very strange errors. The workbook sometimes becomes corrupted, giving a:

"Microsoft Excel has encounted a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the incovenience"

"AppName: excel.exe AppVer: 10.0.6823.0 ModName: kernel32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2945 Offset: 00012a5b"

error when I try to close the spreadsheet. One of the sheets can have a lot of data (up to 10,000 x 150) and the error will also occur if I try and delete the sheet, or clear the entire sheet. Also, the model runs vba code, which at one point deletes the data sheet and adds a new sheet. However, sometimes the sheets.add functionality stop working, i.e. when the code runs the sheets.add line, nothing happens. I don't know if the errors are related.

What's not working is when column J gets cleared or manually deleted, column K must be blank. The worksheet_change event is not working for deletion of column J.
