Hi Richard,


May I ask you why file does not crash when I try to copy from one excel file and it crashes when I try to copy from another file?




It will be an element within the file that is causing Excel to crash.

It is hard to say from here, but it will be some data you are copying or the excel file itself which may be corrupted.

But first (as you should anyway) make sure you have all the updates please.

Then test and we know if the excel file itself is the problem Begi

Let me know how you go please

Thank you
