Fatal exception 0E message and computer lock-up
In Excell 2000 (9.02770) while entering data I repeatedly get a white message screen with "close" on it, followed by the message that fatal exception 0E has occurred at various locations, and the computer locks-up. How can I fix this? If it only happens on a single workbook, it sounds like that workbook is corrupted--and it's time to rebuild. If it happens with all workbooks, I think I'd try: Help|Detect and repair And if that fails, maybe reinstall??? And depending on your version of windows, this may help with the reinstall: OFF2000: Utility to Completely Remove Re...

HELP Outlook send/receive mail icon every 30 or so seconds
I am running office xp, outlook 2002. I just installed dsl broadband with a dual connect modem. The broadband tech originally set modem up as bridge and all was fine except I had to use windows dialer for connection. Next tech resolved the problem ?? by setting modem up as router.

Problem is, outlook is now showing the send/receive mail icon every 30 seconds, however it is not actually sending or receivi...

workbook specific macro icons
I have written a graph analysis macro using VB (Excel 2000 Premium) and assigned a customized toolbar / icon to the macro. It runs well, but it's helpful to rename the file after an analysis is complete under a more desriptive name. When I do this however, even though the macro is still present in the newly named file (under Tools-macro-macros...) the icon is looking for the macro from the original file, and then opens the original file to run the macro in the newly created file. So I end up with 2 different instances of Excel running. Is there any way that an icon can be assigned to m...
