Default Bump Whenever Excel Crashes








Pretty much anytime I change visual basic while stepping through it.

Can we also bump whenever Excel prints out complete and utter garbage instead of whatever you asked for? (laying cells on top of each other, garbling and cutting off text and borders, sizing the font down to .00001 inches, etc.)

If so then:

How about when you record a single action in VBA, but when you play back the resulting macro it generates a completely unhelpful error for you?

Can I post my now, so I won't have to take any time away from the recovery process when the crash occurs?

I was also about to preemptively bump.

I've got some monster spreadsheets that pretty much always crash Excel. Memory problems. Blah.

...okay, let's see if this recalculation is going to do it....

....wow, I'm up to three minutes on the calculation. Think I'll go get some coffee.


....look like about 80% through, still calculating.No crash yet.

How to keep an actuary busy:

1. Bump this thread.

2. Repeat.

(Don't mind me, I'll be the one banging my head against the wall)
