Excel crashes when macro executed

Hi Experts!

I am having trouble with my laptop crashing - getting the message "Microsoft Excel has stopped working....". It does it most often when I am working in the attached Excel VBA. Any ideas?

Hi, DMKetcher.

Can you post a copy of the file, please? I assume that you will need to redact the data, but please check that the file still crashes.

Thanks,
Brian.

This works by having both input and output spreadsheets open and switching to the output spreadsheet when it is asked for.

Perfect - Thank you!
Thank you! I changed I.D. to ID. Am I not allowed to use SSN or is it just too risky for internet business?
Thanks, DMKetcher.

OK, explanation time - why did I change "ID" to "I.D."? The file was corrupt so the first step in recreating it was to save it as CSV (so that the corruption would be removed). However, there's a funny/bug/whatever in Excel that treats any file starting with "ID" as a SYLK file. So, to avoid any issues, I renamed the column.

Am I not allowed to use SSN or is it just too risky for internet business?
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. If this is still about column A then it really doesn't matter whether you call it "ID", "I.D." or "SSN" - as long as you don't save it as a CSV.

Brian.
