    Question:

    Anyone ever encountered this problem?

    Excel spreadsheet, when clicking to save "icon" or "file / save" -

    the entire screen goes black, a blue DOS window pops up with options... one of which is to R = Reconstruct. R is pressed on the keyboard.. prompt to c=continue is requested, then DOS screen goes away and Excel opens back up to the "saved and unaltered" spreadsheet. Everything saves as it should (or appears to) and closing is normal.

    What causes this and how is it corrected?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    AirFrc Mom:confused:

    Thanks O&O...

    Can this be happening when I open Excel and begin a new file? My problem occurs then also...

    I'll check the article and do as it directs (as suggested), thanks.
