    Slowly but steadly over the course of a few weeks I've been getting calls from our network users about their MS Excel crashing with the error of not enough resources. I've virus scanned their systems, which comes up clean. I've been looking around today on the net for Excel or MS Office relate incidents. But have come up with nothing so far.

    Has anyone else experienced this? It seems to be progressing to more and more users, almost like a virus. Again though I'm not picking anything up. Currently I use Symantec Enterprise 8.0 clients. Def's are up to date as well.

    Desktops are W98 and running a range of office software but the main stay is Office 97.

    Let me know if any of you have/are experiencing this.

    and their resources are all adequate???? I assume they would be, but you didn't mention that so I have to ask, instead of working an an assumption. Plenty of RAM to handle the load? enough Hard drive space? Nothing too much running in the background at time of error? Programs running before or during Excel not Resource hogs like Adobe Illustrator? Is this happening after opening and closing multiple workbooks?

    Are these Office applications installed locally, and using templates and resources locally, or are their networked paramters to be aware of?

    Some MS Articles tolook at:
