Microsoft Excel / Mac OS 8.5.1 problem
Posted on 1998-12-10
I use Microsoft Office 98 and Microsoft Excel on my Powerbook 1400 (116MHz
603e chip with 44 MB RAM)
Excel always worked perfectly under system 8.1
This week, I upgraded to OS 8.5 and then to 8.5.1 using the updater from the Apple site.
Since then I haven't been able to use Excel properly - every time I try to make an equation in a cell (eg. "= A1+B1+C1") the program freezes and I have to do a force quit to get back to the Finder.
I have updated my copy of MS Office 98 using the OS 8.5 updater from the Microsoft site, but the problem persists.
The problem vanishes with extensions turned off, so it seems to be an extensions conflict - any idea which one it could be ?
