I'm running a Excel 2003 and have created a very simple workbook that does some validation, additions, no VBA code and has some conditional formatting and I sent it to a coworker and when he tried to open it, it took 15 seconds to load and then he received a Microsoft error report, what would be the cause?

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

A higher version can open lower versions but lower versions sometimes cannot open higher versions.

Try saving your Workbook as a lower version.

On the Save-As Utility at the bottom is a dropdown box that lets you select the version to save as.

Try the: 97-2000 Workbook
