Word v.X With embeded Excel charts from Win Office 2000/XP crashes every time

Postby DMSNYC » Sat, 11 Sep 2004 09:50:58 GMT

I have a cross platform office. I am running diffrent versions of MS
Office, Including v.X, 2004 mac, Office 2000 and XP for PC. Whenever
my users get a file from the PC side with embded Excel charts it just
shuts down office. In 2004 it opens with no problem. i have re created
this with multiple files over diffrent machines and every time it is
the same. I have opened the file in 2004 and deleted the Excel data
resaved it but when opened in v.X it stil lcrashes. when i jsut copy
all the info minus the excel charts to a new doc it opens. Once i  re
add any Excel data back comes the crashes.

System versions 10.2.8 / 10.3.4 / 10.3.5

Anyone else run into this?

Al,

It is very likely that you are running Norton Antivirus on your PC. NAV
touches excel files in a way that makes embedded XLS files crash Office vX.

This as been fixed in Office:Mac:2004. There is somewhere on the MS web site
some instruction to type in on your PC to disable the NAV function that
creates the problem. However note that :
- this will not fixe the already 'touched' xls files
- this will disable the NAV macros virus protection... Not a very good idea

The best solution : deploy Office:Mac 2004 everywhere :-)

BAM

Hi Al,

There are several updates of Excel v.X available. If you have not 
installed any of the updates, then try installing the updates and see if 
that fixes things.

If you have already installed the updates, try removing Office v.X (use 
the uninstall program provided on the CD), then re-install without the 
updates and see if that helps.

There are many possibilities going on, but if what you say is true for 
every machine, then it's probably not a problem with preferences or a 
bad system.

-Jim

Thanks Guys.

First off yes i have tried with all 4 updates to V.X. Clean installs
on clean systems. Changed fonts. Prefs. Seems like the Norton can be
the answer because after checking my records it seems that this
started happening after an install of NAV. i am going to try a NAV
free doc and see how that goes.

 The culprit here is NAV (Norton Anti Virus) on the PC side.  It does some
{*filter*} stuff to Excel files when they are saved on the PC that will make the
files crash everytime in Office X.
 
 Apparently Word 2004 has a workaround for this.  Other than that, the Excel
file should be saved on the PC with NAV Auto Protect OFF, which IT folks are
not to keen on doing.  A previously saved Excel file might have to be copied
and pasted into a brand new document with Norton OFF, then saved.

This issue was on my company Office:2004 deployement tests. It has also been
fixed in PowerPoint 2004... Not only for embedded xls in Word.

Go 2004 !

1.Win Word 2000 to Mac Word 2001 to Win Word 2000 -PROBLEM

I'm having a problem with Word.   

I'm using using Mac Word 2001 on OS 9.1.

I am given documents that were created in Win Word 2000.    I edit and/or
update the formatting in Mac Word 2001.    When the document goes back to
Win Word 2000,   the formatting is messed up and the fonts are wrong.   If
you click on the text, it lists the font as Univers which is correct but
it looks and prints as Courier (Win Word 2000).

What's the problem?    Can't Win Word 2000 handle documents saved in Mac
Word 2001?    Is there any way to fix this?    I tried saving the document
as Word 6, but it looked even worse.....       


Thanks.

3.excel 2000 crash in excel for win 95

i created a spreadsheet in 2000, saved it as a excel 5.0, 
brought it home on a floppy and it won't open in excel for 
win 95.  anybody know why?

4.Run-time error 13 between Win NT and Win 2000

The error occurs on this line ...
If wsh.Name = weeknum(Date, 1) & "-" & weeknum(Date,
> 1) + 1 Or wsh.Name = weeknum(Date, 1) - 1 & "-" & weeknum
> (Date, 1) Then

The Date_Range refers to "='30-31'!$B$3:$B$17", where 30-
31 is the particular sheet I was on when selecting the 
specific range. I would like for the Date_Range to appear 
on every sheet. How would that be accomplished?

The word 'Missing' does not appear in the VBE-References 
checked.

The only machine that this code currently works is the 
machine the code was created on. Any other machine I get 
the type mismatch error. 

TIA.

In the VBE, Look in tools=>references and make sure no 
references are shown
as MISSING.

Also, what line is highlighted when you get the error 
message.

Does Date_Range appear on every sheet?

Regards,
Tom Ogilvy

5.Word and Excel crash on startup - every time

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
Processor: Power PC

I cannot use Word or Excel at all. Both programs crash on startup when clicking on their respective icons in Finder or Dock.

I am able to open an Excel file by clicking on the filename itself, but cannot save or print the file, as it crashes. With Word, the program always crashes, even if I click on a filename to open it.

This has been going on for a while, and I have spent considerable time going through the Mactopia forum archives and trying everything that's been suggested.

I am using Office 2008, and downloaded and installed the latest update today. Still crashing.

I am using a Mac OSX running Tiger 10.4.11, Power PC.

I have tried:
- trashing all suggested preferences including com.microsoft.Excel.plist, com.microsoft.office.plist, com.microsoft.Word.plist and the entire Office 2008 folder
- running disk utility on my Mac and repairing permissions
- resetting my printing system on my Mac - I currently have no printers listed
- removing all Office software on my mac using the Remove Office tool and reinstalling from the setup disk (after trashing all preferences etc)
- updating the new Office version with the latest downloads

I have also searched my computer for the Normal template so that I could trash that - but I do not have a Normal template! I have no templates at all anywhere on my computer. Is this because I can't even start Word and Excel and they need to start in order to create an initial template?

Hope you can help. Just let me know if you want me to post an error log.

Thanks in advance.
