Hmmm, Outlook just crashed. No idea why. I wasn't even doing anything, I'd just come back from a meeting, was reading some e-mail, looked at something on my desk, and it was down. Now it doesn't want to re-start.

Absolutely. Rarely has it failed for me, though I rarely get into that predicament. In fact, over many years of Excel use, crashes have been unusual. I have, of course, found ways to crash Excel deliberately.

Outlook has crashed twice a week for me now. Very annoying.

In the past week, I've crashed Outlook, Word, Excel, and Access, along with our internal valuation software. I tend to have four things going at a time, and often I push the limits too far

3.16 GHz CPU with 3.23 GB RAM, so it's not the computer, it's me.

Mountainhawk, you may have to wait a while (two hours and five minutes to be exact ), but it can work. I let it recover last night, and found out the good news this morning.

So that's how long it takes Maelzel's Chess Player to reconstruct the spreadsheet?
