Hi Team,

For the past few weeks we've been experiencing an issue with one of our shares. This share hold a lot of excel files and the 3 files that are accessed mostly on daily basis keep on getting corrupted and loosing the formulas on the cells. When the file is open excel stops responding and then when you open the file again it looses the formulas. We have tried opening the file in different computers, same problem. All computer that access the file are running office 2007.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I had a similar issue once and my issue was that I had a macro in a spreadsheet that had the same name as a macro in an add-in they were using.  It would corrupt the sheet and we'd have to copy a backup over and hope it worked.  May be totally unrelated, but wanted to share that just in case.

I believe the file does have macros. Let me try renaming it.
