Excel ipf -- meaning and troubleshooting

Possibility 1:

From MSKB Q236299

In Microsoft Excel 2000, when you try open a file that was saved in Excel 97,
you receive an error message similar to the following:

An error occurred while loading 'Sheet111111111111111111111111111'. Do you
want to continue loading the project?

If you click Yes you receive the following error message

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

with details similar to the following:

EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in module VBE6.DLL at 0167:650f6290.

If you click No you receive the error message

File not found.

and Excel does not open the file.

CAUSE
=====

These problems occur when the following conditions are true: - In Excel 97, you copy a worksheet, adding it back to the same workbook
multiple times, either manually or by using a Visual Basic for Applications
macro.

-and-

- After many copies, the worksheet (Name) property in Visual Basic for
Applications becomes one character longer than the limit of 31 characters.

On the final copy, this may cause the following error message

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

with details similar to the following:

Excel has caused an invalid page fault in module EXCEL.EXE at 015f:301dd1a6.

If you have saved the file just prior to this final effort to copy a
worksheet, that file may fail to open in Excel 2000.

To work around this problem, use either of the following methods.

Copy to a New Workbook:

Openthe problem file in Excel 97, and copy all but the sheet with the longest
(Name) property to a new workbook. You can now open this workbook in Excel
2000.

Use the Microsoft Excel 97 File Recovery Macro:

1. Open the workbook in Microsoft Excel 97 and use the Microsoft Excel 97 File
Recovery Macro to create a copy of the problem workbook.

2. Open the re-created workbook in Excel 2000.

For more information about this macro, or to download this macro, go to the
chapter on the Office Resource Kit at the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/appa/appa.htm#top

Scroll down to the Microsoft Excel 97 File Recovery Macro section, and click the
"Download and run" link to download and install the add-in.

Possibility #2 (from MSKB Q215366)When you start Microsoft Excel, you may receive the following error message:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.
If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

If you click Details, you receive an error message similar to the following:

Excel caused an invalid page fault in module Excel.exe at 015f:300a8487.

This problem occurs when you do the following:

- You add the Page Break commanddirectly to the Worksheet Menu Bar (not to a
menu).

-and-

- You have an add-in loaded.

To correct this problem, use any of the following methods:

Method 1: Reset the Excel Toolbar File

The file which contains custom toolbar settings is stored in the
"C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel" folder and is named:

- Excel.xlb, if your computer is not connected to a network or is not set up
with a logon prompt.

-or-

- <Username.xlb>, where <Username>is your user logon name.

Using Microsoft Explorer, rename this file to Test.xlb. Then, start Excel and
open the Test.xlb file. Create a custom toolbar, and move the Page Break button
from the Worksheet Menu Bar to the Custom toolbar. You may place the toolbar
anywhere you want. Then, quit and restart Excel to save the changes to the
toolbar.

Method 2: Remove the Page Break Command:

NOTE: This problem only occurs when you place the command directly on the
Worksheet Menu Bar (not on a menu). You can successfully start and run Excel
with the command on any other toolbar. For example, place the Page Break command
on the Standard instead.

1. On the Tools menu, click Customize.

2. In the Customize dialog box, right-click the Page Break command on the
Worksheet Menu Bar and click Delete.

3. In the Customize dialog box, click Close.

Method 3: Unload All Add-ins:

f you are not using any add-ins, you may unload them instead of removing (or
moving) the Page Break command from the Worksheet Menu Bar. To do this, follow
these steps:

1. On the Tools menu, click Add-Ins.

2. In the Add-Ins dialog box, click to clear (remove the check mark) for all the
add-ins listed, and click OK.
