Hi,

I have an excel workbook that is about 15mb. (excel 2007). The problem is that sometimes, but not everytime, I try to save it takes ~10minutes to save. Sometimes the program just crashes.

Is this because of some of the settings I have when it is saved? The computer I am using is new, this just started happening when I upgraded to excel 07.

Thanks

- How much RAM do you have?
- To narrow down the problem, try an Office Repair using the Office 2007 install media. This should fix any problems specific to your instance of excel.
- Does this happen on other user's computers?

are you saving it as a 2007 or compatible mode. Compatible mode sometimes does strange things to saved workbooks.

Yes I am using compatability mode. I have 2gb of ram. I will try saving as a 2007 document, that should fix it.
