Excel lock-ups and errors

By gojonah ·
We are experiencing many application errors while using Excel from Office
2000 and files that will return the message "locked for editing" by "user
name" that is the user name that is the current user. Sometimes those files
can be re-accessed after re-booting the machine and sometimes the files are
rendered unrecoverable after the lock out. Each machine that it has
occurred on is using Windows 98 and Office 2000 running on Pentium II
processors with 64 meg. All machines are connected toa Novell network,
however it does not matter if the files are located on the server or on the
PC's C drive, the results are the same. I have been watching for
similar problems in your techmail, etc and haven't seen this come up. Does
anyone have any suggestions.

This could be occuring because the user defined function is located in the report module.
Transfer the user-defined function from the report module to a global module.
see KB article Q208884.

This may not help, but were you sure that any anti-virus software was disabled before the install? This causes all sorts of strange errors, mostly the dreaded "out of memory" error, but other equally off-the-wall errors have resulted from not disabling antivirus on microsoft office (not just 2000, have seen this on 97 and 95 too)
good luck ;-)
