Help please, have a document created in Works 8 spreadsheet. When I select Print, Print preview or Page setup the program shuts down and the message 'Microsoft works 8 has encountered a problem & needs to close' appears.
Tried many times same result.

I had this problem with a photo program but not with word.

I just re installed . That worked.

Could be worth a try re installing spreadsheet.

Do you have a disk for Microsoft Works 8? If so insert it in your CD drive, let it automatically boot up and you should be able to select Repair this installation.

Thanks for replies but problem remains.
I have tried repair using MS Works 2006 disk 1,
then reinstalled works and word.
Also updated Windows and Office which are at SP 3.
Still get the error message when using a new spreadsheet doc or any already stored .xls

Why do you have both Works and Office? Have you tries saving your spreadsheet as an Excel spreadsheet and loading and printing in Excel? You may even be able to open your Words spreadsheet directly into Excel - open Excel and see if you can see it from the <File><Open> facility.
