Hello,

We are receiving an error in Excel which has no meaning to us - it contains alot of foreign writing, maybe unicode or something.

Ive had a good look around for info but as to no avail.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Looks like Chinese to me. When do you get the error - always with one workbook, or with all, and what causes it to pop up?

I can tell you that is no Asian language.  It is really gibberish, which means that someone tried to produce a message from VBA either intended for Unicode or the VBA is mangling it.

Is there VBA code behind the sheet and are you able to show it?

Or may be someone changed the default language of office??
