A fundamental problem!

Posted by Chris on October 25, 2001 7:21 AM

I have a file that when I try to open comes up with the following error:

"Too many cell formats"

When I click ok to the prompt the file closes down before I get chance to make any amendments to it.

I know how to resolve the cell formatting problem if I was able to get into the file, but I don't get chance to as the file closes down straight away.

Does anyone know how to force excel to open the file and keep it open?

The only thing I know of with that error, is an issue with McAfree virus scan. Do you use that product? Go to the web page below for more information and the fix. HTH
