The formula for Named Range 'Analysis' is wrong. It should be


and not

=OFFSET(Topics!$A$1,0,0,COUNTA(Topics!$A:$A) +1 ,1)

When I made that change the wb no longer crashed.

To make that change go to Formulas|Name Manager and edit the formula. Note that most of the others need changing too. There's one that has +10 rather than +1 and I don't know what that is all about but you may either have to remove that +10 or change it to +9.

I just check the file I just sent you and it shows the correction. Maybe I'm experiencing tired eyes?

OK I see that you made the correction. Does it still crash for you? It doesn't for me.

Still crashed for me - maybe Excel doesn't like me or I need to re-install Excel

Maybe the difference is that I have both Analysis Toolpak and Analysis Toolpak VBA installed.

I installed Analysis Toolpak VBA and no problem either? Maybe it has something to do that the workbook is save as a macro?
If more help is needed I'll open another questions.
