    Tools/Options causes crash (Excel 97)

    I am having Excel crash on me when I select the Tools/Options menu item. I get the Invalid Page fault at page <unknown> message, then excel snaps shut. Any suggestions as to what might cause this. I've tried it on two ss and after a reboot. Everything else seems OK. TYIA

    Something's corrupt somewhere <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    On a more helpful note, have you tried entering "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeexcel.exe" /regserver in the start run box? This will force excel to reregister itself and may solve the problem.

    Tried it. No soap. Anything I need to be careful about on the uninstall/reinstall front? Looks as if that's the only way out.

    Re: Tools/Options causes crash (Excel 97)

    I have corrected a similar situation in Excel 2000 by deleting all of the .xlb (toolbar) files I could find. I do not know if this will work with 97, but it might be worth a try. Excel (at least 2000) recreates the files on the fly, although you will lose any customizations you might have made.

    Toolbar trick didn't work, either. I guess I will try to re-install. BTW, where are the "options" kept? No particular file? I imagine I would have read about it here, somewhere along the line, if such a file existed. Thanks for the suggestions. Let's see what happens.
