Excel 2007 crashes when attaching excel files to outlook 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In every instance whenever I have excel open and am working on files if I try and attach (to an outlook email) a different excel file than the one I am working one excel will crash and go through a lengthy reset process (which I rarely let finish).  Is there a patch for this?

  • Hi ckemp,

    First of all, I couldn't reproduce the issue on my test machine. (Office 2007  with Windows 7 64-bit)

    Please make sure you've kept your Office and Windows up to date.

    Since Office 2007 Service Pack 3 has recently released, you should try to install it and check the issue again.

    DownloadDownload the 2007 Office Suite SP3 package now.


    If that won't work, please try the following:

    1. Disconnect any unreachable network drives if you have and check the issue.

    2. Clear Internet Explorer History and check the issue.

    3. Run Excel in safe mode to check the issue. To do so, type Excel.exe /safe in the Run window and press Enter, and open the document from it.


    Let me know the result, any questions feel free to post back.
