Everytime I close Excel 2000 or Word 2000, it hangs and then "end now" comes up. I have win XP Pro. No problem opening them up, but only when it closes that it hangs? Also in powerpoint. Thanks for any info.
I'm not sure on this one. I have Office XP and the programs I've installed from it are running with no problems. You might want to try going to the Office 2000 website and see if there are any service packs or updates for it... I know there's already a service pack out for Office XP. That's the only thing I can think of. Good luck and I hope you get it working.
Did you ever find a fix for this?
I have the same problem and I have tried the compatiblity options,
re-installed, repaired and checked the Micro$oft site and nothing.
Only Excel hangs on my machine all of the other programs work just fine.
1. check that the location for all the directory's still exist; to check this go into word and goto tools/options/file locations
There must be a directory standing at least after: User directory and user templates, also tools and startup directory's have te be defined...
2. Your normal.dot has become corrupt (normally under '%userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\Normal.dot'
rename this file and try again
3. one of the shared dll's has become corrupt. Goto control panel/add_remove programs/Microsoft office 2000 and choose repair
I hope that one of above will solve your problem...
Non of those options helped with my Excel problem....but as I looked at the Tools>>>Options list in Excell it had my first and last name as "User" and I changed it to my Windows login name and the hang>>>crash problem went away.
