I've recently encountered a problem saving Excel files that contain comments. This happens if I open an existing file with a comment, edit it and save it, and also with a newly created file that I add a comment in a cell to.
What happens is I get a circling cursor and after a bit a message saying that Microsoft Excel has stopped working. In the directory where I tried to save the file a 0 byte file is left with a name that appears to be several random numbers and no extension. If I remove all comments from the Excel file, it saves fine.
I am running Windows 10 64 bit (creators edition) and Office 365 Home.
I took the following steps to try to resolve the issue:
1. I did a quick repair on Microsoft Office - no help.
2. I did an online repair off Microsoft Office (this seems to reinstall all of office) - no help
3. I went back to a restore point that I believe was prior to my experiencing this issue - no help and I have no earlier restore points to try.
Can anyone help?
