Sorry for asking but which spreadsheet software are you using? Did you
use exactly the same software on you old Windows 2000 server without any
I'm asking because I've experienced such problems quite often with MS
Office when using the "Tracing changes" functionality (Sorry, I only
know the menu entry of this function from the German version). Making
heavy changes in such a documents finally leads to a corrupted document...
