Good luck! MS Office 2008 is definitely less problematic under SL. However, 2004 Excel crashes are very rare, AFAIK. If you want to communicate with other Office users, may I suggest that you save the files in the old version (compatibility mode, without the X in the end). This way, they can be read directly by Office 2004 that is still widespread.

Yes. I intend to do just that. Thanks.

It has been a month since I upgraded to MS Office 2008 and 4Gb RAM instead of 2Gb. Since that time, I have not had a single crash of Excel or any other Office component. To all of you who helped with this problem, I owe a great big thank you! It's a privilege for me to be a member of this forum. smile
