Office Excel 2010 Bug report


  • Dear all,

    my Boss found a bug in Excel, that can be re-created on any machine, i tested it with.

    I made some screenshot, so you may do it yourself.

    If lock one row, but dont Lock the one next to it, and then lock the whole sheet with the option "insert hyperlinks" and then mark both rows, excel freezes.

    i tried the most of the other sheet-options as well, but only "insert hyperlinks" seems to to the trick. I did the screenshot on a terminalserver with 16 cores, so a permanent CPU usage of 6% is quite evil ;)

    You can do this with any new spreadsheet.

    Can i do anything else, to solve this issue?


    Best regards
