    Angry Excel 2007 crash: Just open the file, do anything to it, save, close, open againg = CRASH

    I mean, anything at all, from formatting, or protect/unprotect, or click on a name to see the userform with the data... ANYTHING!
    I have to save a copy every time i wish to open the file!
    Sometimes even if i put on fullscreen and back, than save, the next time I open it excel will crash when i click on a name.
    I already copied all to notepad and create a new book... exported the forms (2) and reimported. At this point i cannot assign a macro to the buttons over A1 otherwise when i open the file again and click a name it will crash.

    Attached the seek file....

    I am getting crazy over it. It was almost complete....

    The attached file works without crash. Click on a name to see... then do something, save it, open again, click on a name and.... crash!

    I take it you have no working back-up files? If not, that really is too bad, but hopefully you won't put all your eggs in one basket in future.

    I will see if I can open your file without any crashes.

    The attached seems to be working fine here on Excel 2016 (365). You will see that I have used the user form to delete a record.

    EDIT: Yes, you are right - it crashes when I reopen it. You will need to revert to an earlier copy and rebuild bit by bit until you find what it is that is causing the problem.

    I think it is the EDITFORM that is corrupted. I just made a new one and until now seems to work...

    Good. Please make a habit of creating INCREMENTAL copies of important files: for examle, you could add a version number to the file each time you open it before working on it using the Save As ... option. I tend to use the date as part of my version numbers.

    By the way, your INSERTFORM has several compile errors in it, which probably are not helping.

    What's to say- you've changed it since the version that didn't compile.
