    Using Lotus 1-2-3 from Smart Suite 9.8 under Windows XP, I am working on three large data files (the smallest one is 14MB) that have a basic data sheet and then several other sheets that calculate tables from the basic data using mostly @dcount and @dsum functions. I can work with these files, calculate, save, etc., but when I try to close one of these files, Lotus crashes (I get the error screen that the program "has encountered a problem and needs to close"). It also crashes the same way if I click the "X" in the upper right corner of the window to close the program. This happens both on my laptop (Windows XP Pro) and on my desktop (SP Home). I don't think it is a memory problem, since I have 1.0 GB of memory on the desktop and 1.5GB on the laptop. Lotus closes all other files without a problem. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
