Excel 2010 crashing frequency RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All.......

    Windows XP, Excel 2010

    I've been writing a bunch of code in Excel 2010 lately, and find that the program crashes several times each session.  This is more crashing in one session than I've experienced with all the other older versions of Excel put together.

    What's up......is this normal?  Have I got a wrong setting somewhere?.........this is not rocket-science code either, just simple stuff.

    Please help

  • It is not normal.

    Try reinstalling your Microsoft Office.

    Also, remove any third-party addins.

  • When I've had problems it was generally due memory limits.  Also, they are not checking Office 2010 against Windows XP anymore.  There have been numerous updates to Office 2010 since XP support was terminated.  I don't know how much memory you have but I would recommend at least 2Gb.  I would move to Windows 7 or Windows 10.

  • Before you reinstall try to repair Office.

  • Thanks mogulman52 for your quick reply, but I don't really think memory is actually my problem at this time.  I have a 3.4GHz processor and 4GB of RAM installed, although it only shows up as 3GB.  I don't do updates, so I don't think XL2010 has outgrown my computer.   I also have other versions of Excel on this same computer and they don't crash like XL2010 does.  

    Thanks again,

  • Hmmm, that's exactly what I didn't want to hear, but very probably that will solve my problem...lol.  I'll lumber along a bit more, maybe delete an add-in or two and see how things go before re-dong the installation when it gets to the point that I just can't stand it.....

    Many thanks Felipe,

  • On Windows 7 it is Control Panel >> Programs and Features.  Select Office 2010 and an option to Change should appear along with Uninstall.  Select Change.  A form appears with the option to Repair.  I don't remember the equivalent on XP.
