The problem is going from Excel to a text document, is that correct?

Is the Text Converter software something you downloaded separately and if so from where please?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have not downloaded it

Ok, so you are just using Excel to export the spreadsheet as a text document, and then Excel freezes, correct?

Try the steps here to export/save as a text document:
