EXCEL caused an IPF in module OLEAUT32.DLL

I'm using Microsoft Office 2000 Professional on Win98-SE, I suddenly
began getting the error message:

EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in
module OLEAUT32.DLL at 0187:653aac21.
EAX=000047e9 CS=0187 EIP=653aac21 EFLGS=00010282
EBX=0040fd9c SS=018f ESP=0062b54c EBP=0062b5bc
ECX=65350218 DS=018f ESI=00000000 FS=0f57
EDX=00000000 ES=018f EDI=00000001 GS=0000

I tried re-installing EXCEL but that didn't work. I changed the
Oleaut32.dll with an older version and that also didn't work. I ran
Office Setup and chose to run EXCEL from the CD and it went smooth
without problems. Then I reactivated EXCEL to run from my hard drive
and it only went smooth once then began to cause the same problem.

I wonder if anybody can help me define the reason for this error

Excel :sorting lists?
I use Excel to create lists of equipment from an existing master list I have developed. Most of the time I do not need all the equipment on the master list, i.e. the number of units is 0. Is there a way to filter or sort the list so that all zero values and their subsets will not be visible or printed? Basically, you should do a dropdown that REFERS to your master list. Then you can choose only the items you want from the dropdowns. I just uploaded a file at http://www.myexpertsonline.com/freedls/pricelist.xls that shows how you do it. The only difference is you will copy that data valid...

When this happens, the file creates a tmp file in the directory. It seems to me that excel ...

Cannot edit Excel data in a PowerPoint
I'm not sure which discussion group this applies to, so I'm posting it in both Excel and PowerPoint. I just started having problems with any Excel workbooks embedded into a PowerPoint presentation. It is a bit difficult to describe but I'll give it my best shot. Whenever I double-click an Excel object to edit the data, it opens up like normal and gives me all of the MS Excel options I normally get. But what is very VERY strange is that when I try to select a single cell (or row/column), it will take me into the MS Excel program and not allow me to edit anything ...

Using Excel to WRITE to a closed Excel file
Somebody told me that the best way to use Excel (and VBA) to write to a closed (.xlsx) Excel file is to first open the file, write changes using VBA code, then close the file. Well, I don't really want the target write file to open on the screen and let my users see the file changes happen. My question is, is there a way to invisibly or stealthily open a closed Excel file, write changes, then close the file without anybody see this all happen?? Also, does anyone know of an alternative way to write to a closed Excel file using VBA/Excel?? Thank you! application.scree...

Pivot Export Opens Additional New Excel Session
