    Hi there.

    Considering the extreme age of this software, it's not surprising that it is now having problems.

    Most modern CPUs support virtualisation so why not consider installing Windows XP in a virtual host and office XP in that.

    I have Office 2000 installed on an IP/Insider Preview computer, Version 1803 Build 17672.1000, seems to be fine. I think the biggest issues will come with using its Outlook but I don't need that on that computer. Office 2000 is not a 'left-over', newly installed after Version 1709 was running.

    My IP computer is 64-bit and Office is 32-bit, didn't need Compatibility mode to install. Office 2010 is the first to be available as either 32-bit or 64-bit.

    It's a "known" problem. Excel only crashes with 64-bit Win10. Excel 2003 has a similar problem but some have been able to fix it.

    Hi folks
    run it as a VM - an XP VM doesn't take much storage or resources -- then you can keep using Office XP until the end of the universe.

    Once you've created your documents save to say a USB / external HDD and then copy to your main machine if you need to email them anywhere .

    I wouldn't allow an XP machine these days - even a VM access to the Internet.

    You can of course share HDD's with an XP system -- use HOST ONLY networking between Host and XP VM.

    Cheers

    A workaround is:
    1. Select all cells, change justification to something different.
    2. Enter you data or whatever.
    3. Select all cells, change justification back.
    4. Save
