Excel 2010 SP1 formatting

Excel 2010 SP1 on terminal server 2008 R2.  I'm not sure if it's a server issue or Excel, but I'm leaning towards the server.  
I've got a large spreadsheet with multiple tabs and each tab has a complex pivot table.  On one server only, when I open the spreadsheet, initially it's fine.  When it reads the data and updates the cells, the formatting for the column widths on 4-6 columns is blown out to 255 from around 20.  I'm stumped on this one.  Any ideas?

When the spreadsheet is automatically updated upon opening.  I can turn that off, but it shouldn't do that.

How is the update happening?

Is there code importing data?

Is a data/web query being refreshed?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The update happens when the spreadsheet is opened.  It reads data (for about 6 tabs) from a 7th tab and updates accordingly.  It's all pivot tables, no data importing.

This can be closed.  I didn't figure it out, but it seems no one knows what's up.
