There is a pc in our network that crashes lotus 123 every time it tries to open a specific file. I can open the file on every computer except that one. when i re-installed lotus it opened the file so i closed my call but only one day later the same problem occured. i removed lotus 123 from the system and cleaned up the registry removing everything that had to do with lotus. then i reinstaled lotus and again it opened the file. But the verry same day the same problem occured. This is the fault that lotus gives me

I would suggest two things:

A. You may need more RAM.  If this is a big file it may be overloading the computer.  Unlike MS software, Lotus applications suck at managing memory (among other things)...

B. You may have bad RAM.  

And my last suggestion is to convert to MS Office :)

That will definately solve your problems.
