    Excel is quite solid, however yesterday while using excel 97 the program developed the bug above.

    EVERY TIME I go to enter a formula using the above it returns an invalid page error in module excel.exe.

    If I edit and them use the home key, as soon as I use either of the above it also crashes.

    Interestingly when I am on the LAn/WAn I use the same version/ program ( c but the problem is not there. Excel behaving properly.

    I have checked and cleared all temp files , start up directories etc but to no avail.

    Has anyone come across this before and if so how did you overcome it?

    If following the directions at:

    http://www.thewordexpert.com/cleanyourpc.htm

    do not work, we may need to dump your registry key. Go to Start-Run and type regedit and hit enter.

    For Excel 97, browse to:
    hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftoffice8.0excel

    For Excel 2000, browse to:
    hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftoffice9.0excel

    Right-click the excel folder and rename it to OldExcel. Close the registry editor and launch Excel.

    Dreamboat,

    As I have already cleaned out the temp files etc I chose to take the Regedit route.
    I can confirm it worked first time.

    Thanks a million.
