Is this a new install?  Office 2013 works well on Windows 7.

Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Office and do a Full Repair (not Quick). When complete, restart the computer and test.

If this does not work, make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account), log into the new Windows Account and try Excel in the new Windows Account. You could have a Windows Profile error.

make sure the windows 7 and the office are both 32-bit or both are 64-bit

Check if there are missing / broken reference.

- Open XL and push the end-button.
- Switch to VB-Editor using ALT+F11.
- Make sure that Book1.xls is selected in the Project Window.
- Select the command Tools | Reference and look for if some selected post has the name "ISMISSING". If so, unselect the reference and restart XL.

To the earlier post, Office 32-bit works fine on Windows 7 64-bit. Microsoft still does not recommend Office 64-bit except in specific circumstances.

If you installed Office 64-bit, try uninstalling it and installing Office 32-bit
