    Invalid Page Fault in VBE6.DLL (2000)

    When I try to open my workbook, I get the "Invalid Page Fault in module VBE6.DLL". I can see the workbook, but before I can do anything, the error message comes up.

    I have reinstalled W98SE
    I have uninstalled Office and reinstalled Office
    Security is set to high in hopes of trapping the macros
    I have tried to open it from another instance of Excel

    Other workbooks open fine, is there any hope for this one? The last thing I remember doing was adding a user form named "Help" (which might not have been the wisest thing to do).

    Thanks,

    Just a wild thought: have you tried opening it from your browser?

    I wonder exactly what an "Invalid Page Fault" is anyway? Strikes me as an uspecific, highfalootin, double-negative term for "SCREWUP"! (Through no fault of my own, of course!) <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    You know all about data being kept in swap files as Pages. They just don't like what you've been stashing in the cache! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I take it you've tried the /r switch: "....excel.exe" /r "workbook pathfile name". A final gasp: safe mode shouldn't make any difference, but you never know.

    An invalid page fault occurs when you try to use a memory address that is not defined in the system page table. This usually means that a program error has resulted in an invalid memory address.

    It sounds like your workbook may be corrupted. Try saving the file in HTML format, then open that file and save it back as a .xls file. You may lose some formatting, but it might resolve the problem.

    Well, if I could open it at all, not only might I be able to correct what is wrong, but I might also be able to attempt to save it as HTML. The workbook and individual sheets are protected (and reprotected on sheet deactivate events) so I don't believe that I could save it as HTML if I were able to open it.

    .What browser did you attempt to open it under?

    .Do you have anything else which reads Excel files? eg, email program; import into Word or Front Page? (straw clutching here). Are there any addins which may be doing soemthinf to it? Any difference if you hold down the shift key while openening (to bypass macros)?

    Re: Invalid Page Fault in VBE6.DLL (2000)

    Tried to open under IE5.5...no luck.

    Tried Word, anything else which might help...no luck.

    Have probably tried every two and three key combination of Tab, Ctrl, Shift, Esc, Insert, End, Delete, Pause, Alt, and Enter that exists, coupled with setting security to "High".

    I fear the Grinch has stolen my book...guess I will have to get my backup out. Lost about 6 hours work to get back to where I was. Funny thing is, I probably have spent at least that much time unistalling, reinstalling, and otherwise attempting to get back where I was!

    Sorry, from a previous message I thought that it would open but only after giving that message. I now realize that that message would cause the program to be terminated.

    Try opening Excel, and use the File open to navigate to the file, select the file in the list, then hold down the Shift key when you press OK to open the file.

    Re: Invalid Page Fault in VBE6.DLL (2000)

    Actually, the weird part is that the last time I had the file open was when I was digging around in it trying to find some code for <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=xl&Number=102798&page=0 &view=collapsed&sb=5&o=0&vc=1#Post102798>this post</A>.

    At that point I was using IE6.0...but never would (and still wouldn't) imagine that IE would have something to do with it. I had highlighted some code to copy and paste, then closed it. Never came up for air since...go figure!

    Re: Invalid Page Fault in VBE6.DLL (2000)

    Thanks Legare, but no go again...tried File/Open with no luck. Didn't show up in the MRU list since I haven't been able to open it, so I manually changed the registry to show it in the MRU list, tried it from there, but still no luck. Looks like I've been Scrooged (somewhat at least!)

    Thanks,

    I wasn't talking about the MRU list. I was talking about the file list in the File/Open dialog box. With the file hilited in that list, hold down the Shift and click OK.
