I recently upgraded a Workbbook that have been using for a vey long time without a problem

The new workbook however when i open it excel crashes giving me the standard excel has performed an illegal operation box with a tick box to save and buttons to report or not to MS :tazz:

I have tried opening through fresh excel by both repair and normal, tried in Excel safe mode (excel /s) also tried disabling Norton (both office plugin and whole program)

The workbook however will open in MS XLviewer but as you cannot do anything with it then its pointless
Would be greatful of your Sage like wisdom
