Default Unexpected closure of Excel

I have a 23Mb Spreadsheet which has links to various other sheets and
PowerPoint Presentations. When I select certain sheets to create a copy, the
following occurs

1. Book 1.xls created

2. reading data.......

3. calculating

but at 15% complete Excel shuts down with no warning or error message. if 3,
4 or 5 sheets are open which are not connected, they also shut down w/o
saving or promptinig for a save.

I can create a copy with some sheets but as soon as I include other sheets
the problem appears. Memory does not seem to be an issue, nor which computer
on the network I use. Network profiles have been reset, no good, even a roll
back to a copy of the sheet that worked, but that now does not work..

Something, somewhere is conflicting or is corrupted, any ideas

Have you tried 'Open and Repair'?

Also try saving as a .htm file and then back to a .xls file (called
RoundTripping) as this can often fix corruptions.
