I use Excel 2013 64 bit and sometimes Excel just keeps crashing on me. It used to happen to me a lot more in the past, but after I discovered what was causing the repeat behaviour I have been able to greatly reduce how often this occurs.
First a description of the problem
If this happens to you then you will already be aware of this scenario. You are inside your workbook doing something important (it always happens when you are doing something important), and then the screen background greys out, and you get a message saying Microsoft Excel has stopped working. It then “pretends” to be looking for a solution prior to telling you that it can’t fix it and you have to close the program.
And if your experience is anything like mine, once this starts to happen with a workbook, it keeps on happening over and over with seemingly no way out.
So what causes this repeat behaviour?
Well there are 2 main causes for this problem.
