Has the issue recently started occurring? Can you open this on someone else machine? Could be a corrupt workbook.

It looks like the oart.dll is the cause of the problem.

Start with an office repair as suggested by John-Charles

If this fails then rename your oart.dll to orart.old.  Copy the oart.dll from a working computer (with the same office version!) onto yours.  Then restart excel and re-test.

The oart.dll can be found here:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15

If that doesn't work then revert back to the original dll.
