MS Query Crashes after upgrading to Excel 2010

I've upgraded Excel from 2007 to 2010 and now MS Query keeps crashing.  I've read solutions about copying the MSQRY32.EXE file from Office 12 to the Office 14 directory but it doesn't seem to work - I get a message that it isn't installed.

The error states that Microsoft Query has encountered a problem and needs to close.  

I'm trying to extract data from Sage Line 50 Professional 2012 into Excel.  I don't really mind how I do it, I just need it to work, either via MS Query or another route if anybody has one.

If you upgraded the install originally, I would first try a full uninstall of MS office and then reboot, and install office 2010 fresh.

markusdamenous - thanks - I am happy to try that.  Is your suggestion based on experience or speculative?

Thanks

Both.  It's high up on the list of things I would do faced with a strange issue like that.  Upgrade should work just fine, but I have experienced issues.

It seems to work with some queries and not others.  For example if I change the join between two tables from one field to a different one (containing similar data) it crashes.  If I restrict the number of rows with the same join it works.  Really frustrating

Which driver are you using?  

Also, read something that you could try.  Turn off "Validate query before saving or returning data".  Reports to be the 5th tick box in the options menu, can't check at the moment as using a tablet.

which driver?  do you mean what version of msqry32.exe?

Yes - I read about the Validate query before saving or returning data and unchecked it but no avail.

Am trying now on a machine that hasn't had 2007 installed.....

Is there a way to bypass MS Query completely?  Anybody?

SokellaAuthor Commented:
Have determined this is a timeout problem - the query is taking over half an hour to run.... have increased the timeout and it seems to have helped.

The issue was timeout, none of the other answers fixed it.
