    I have WP Ofc  x5 and x7 and have tried x8. All of them crash sometimes but 7 and 8 do it more often than 5. I have one file that will crash the system about 10 - 20% of times, after I save the file, when I close it. Other times the system will crash with the first file that I open after starting Quattro  -  the file will appear to open OK but as soon as I try to do anything, such as editing a cell, when I hover the cursor over the cell and click the mouse. Sometimes closing Quattro and re-starting it helps, but other times I have to re-boot Windows.  Running this on a Dell with an I7 processor, recently upgraded to Win 10 (on the last day) but that does not seem to make any difference.

    We used to have that same problem.  I think the key is to "generate" it always just before you try to save it.  Good luck.
