    Are you running Office 2007 SP1? It fixed a number of issues and supposedly this was one of them.

    i uninstalled and didn't apply any sp yet.. i see if that will keep it from crashing.

    Reinstall with no SP installed fixed the issue... Once SP2 is installed getting OGL.dll issue..

    thank you for the points.  So SP2 re-introduced a known issue fixed in a previous SP.  Sounds about right.   :)  Sonder if Microsoft is aware of it?  Since we are not accustomed to using much graphics in our spreadsheets we probably have not run into the error where I work.
