Hi,

recently purchased office for mac, wasn't having any problems with it previously but now it won't open any of the applications, ie excel or word. I'm just getting a message about it quitting unexpectedly and would I like to report it to apple or try again which I did but same again. I restarted the macbook hoping that would sort out any glitch but it's still happening, anyone got any ideas how to rectify the situation.

Many thanks.

Did you do anything to your system before you started getting those messages? Mess around with anything?

No, just doing the usual surfing, it managed to open entourage but not excel, word or powerpoint.

First thing I would do is re-install Office:Mac.

Also, if you still have the demo version or Office: Mac in your Applications folder or in your Trash, get rid of it completely.

have you used monolingual or anything to remove the powerpc libraries to free up space? i did that and for the life of me, could not figure out why my office (which is NOT universal binary) would not open
