Excel Problems

  kc50 17:25 21 Oct 2003

I've just installed Office 2000. I'm using Windows 98. When I'm using excel and click on the drop down menu to change the font my system crashes. I get and error message'a fatal exception OE has occured at 017f:bff9dfff'
Any ideas?

or you could go into C:\Windows\Fonts and try opening them on by one (if there aren't too many) to see if any causes a problem

put your office 2000 cd back in, goto add/remove, click office 2000, when the menu appears click repair, follow the on-screen instructions.

once it has done, try running excel again.

if this doesnt work, uninstall office 2000, browse (or search) the office cd looking for a file called "OFFCLN9" run the file, this clears any stubborn bits of office.

restart your computer and re-install office 2000.

good luck
