Default EXCEL FILE BLOAT CAUSING FILE CRASH

Hello,
MS EXCEL 2003 on XP PRO.

I have a couple of simple files used for upload to an access database (they
are external linked table). They are very simple. Personally I would guess
thye should never approach must less exceed, 1 MB. Lately they have bloated
to over 7MB and opening them is dicey but copying/pasting out of it causes
excel to CRASH completely.

as a result I've had to rebuild the files from scratch.

What causes this and what can be done to prevent it?
