I use Excel 2007 to do a fairly large multidepartmental Financial forecast and results package. The file size is currently at 48,000 KB and will continue to grow. I have this file open along with others of its size at the same time during use. Frequently Excel will crash during an autosave, when creating a new formula that references other workbooks, or randomly as work is being completed. i also have issues of long times to open the file, calculate the file, or save the file.
A co-worker has 2003 excel and uses the same files I do and does not run into the crashing issue. He does have issues with long times to open and save the files. We have purposely not updated the coworker to 2007 yet due to the issue of my excel consistently crashing. Due to the 2003/2007 sharing all files are saved as 2003 file types.
We have tried saving the files as 2007 only and done some tests on doing the activitiesd that would make it crash and it continues to consistently crash as a 2007 file. I have also turned off autosave, which did not help. We ran a repair on office, which did not help.
Any one have any thoughts?
