Well, Would a name like "Apple" for the sheer be OK for the system?
whatever name I give the sheet - with plain letters only - the systems say name is invalid and continue to be frozen / wont let me perform other functions
the problem is "naming the sheet" in the workbook. This is the function where the system has frozen.
it wont let me get out of the bottom function in the workbook (file) where it request me to name the new sheet
almost all other Excel functions - including saving the workbook (file) are therefore currently not accessable
And none of the sheet names can be the same exact names..
You could try pressing F1 or escape to back out of t he naming window though.. That may at least allow you to save the entire document, so that we can see if this is an error in excels preferenc files or program files.
well - we are getting a little closer
What you say above is exactly the same a the system keep telling me in a message box that keeps coming up everytime I tryd to respond to exactly that message - which I have done now probably 50 times during the last couple of hours
what else can we do
I solved the problem - I just pushed esc
