Excel keeps shutting down

Hello Everyone,
I'm having some issues with Excel. It keeps 'not responding' and then will just close or say that the program needs to restart.
 I think the issue is that I'm trying to link different spreadsheets.
 For example I had a worksheet with a data table in it. I copied and pasted the data table into a new worksheet as a 'linked photo'. It worked a few times last week but for some reason today Excel kept shutting down every time I tried to do that. I'm trying to create financial dashboards and I feel like the function would be really helpful if it worked.
Any solutions for this problem?

Kaptain1,

I'm not at all sure how to cure the problem. However try copying and 'paste_special' values only.

Using linked pictures is extremely resource intensive, so perhaps you are having memory issues. Is this the only thing that causes problems? Also, have you tried a different default printer? (Printer drivers cause all sorts of performance issues in later versions of Excel as they are closely linked to Excel's display)
