    unresolved crash problem

    Anybody else experiencing this? Any clues?

    In an Excel chart, the second time I make a color/style change to a series format such as color, line style, marker color, Excel bombs. The first change is fine. If the next change I make involves a series, I get "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down."

    This happens on different machines, different W95 and W98 builds, the only thing I could say is consistent is that I'm toting around an old personal.xls with my favorite macros.

    Any comments apreciated,

    John Jacobson

    Re: unresolved crash problem

    The last time I had this happen, in Excel 2000, I exported the sheet to HTML, and imported it again. This doesn't work in XL97 though- the XL2K exports everything, not just a cut-down shadow.

    I have this happen occaisionally- it appears as if there's some sort of corruption somewhere.

    You could try copying sheets to a new workbook. Or even copying the code and recreating the charts.
