Hello

We are having an issue with Excel crashing in our Citrix environment, We have captured a dump file but it is saying the symbols are missing.

Where can we find these symbols.

Symbols can be downloaded from ms technet; alternatively here is the link, you've not specified which office, hopefully the asortment will match your needs https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/download-symbols

or post the dmp file here for analysis
normally, you have to open windbg, select Symbol file path and use this path
SRV*https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
then save the workspace,close wdbg, and retry

It has the drop-down by OS, and then within the OS version, it gives you the more detailed selection.
i.e. symbols offered for windows 7 and windows 10 for the same version of office might differ, such that you have to expand the windows 10 and then drill down to the office symbols...

The issue might not be related to office, but to the OS i.e. depending on what you are trying to do when the application crashes, such as you trying to print, the printer driver might be failing crashing the office App while the symbols point to the kernel/printer driver as the culprit. loading the office symbols will not be enough, as you would need to load the Windows OS symbols in this case.

We have spoken with Microsoft via an MSP and we have passed the dump to them as only they have access to MS Office symbols.  Thank you for your assistance.
