XL7: Illegal Operation Error Activating Embedded Object

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Excel, when you double-click an embedded object on a worksheet
that you have stopped sharing, you may receive an illegal operation error
message. When you click Details, a message similar to the following
appears:
EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in module EXCEL.EXE
at 0137:501165fe
-or-
EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in module EXCEL.EXE
at 0137:500e8ba8

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you perform each of the following actions without
closing the workbook between actions:

  • Insert an OLE object on your worksheet
  • Share the workbook that contains the object
  • Stop sharing the workbook
  • Double-click the embedded object
The problem only occurs when you stop sharing a workbook, and then double-
click an embedded object if the embedded object was inserted in the
workbook since the last time you opened the file.


Note that you cannot edit or insert an object in a shared workbook. You
must stop sharing the workbook before you can edit or insert an embedded
object. However, if you have not closed the workbook since you inserted the
object, you receive an illegal operation error message if you stop sharing
the workbook, and then double-click the object.

WORKAROUNDS

To work around this problem when you share a workbook that contains an
embedded object, and then want to edit the object, use any of the following
methods:

Method 1:

Close the workbook, and open the workbook again before you clear the Allow Multi-User Editing check box in the Shared Lists dialog
box.

Method 2:

Clear the Allow Multi-User Editing check box in the Shared Lists
dialog box, close the workbook, and then open the workbook again
before you edit the object.

Method 3:

Use the Open or Edit command to edit the object instead of
double-clicking the object by doing the following:
  1. Clear the Allow Multi-User Editing check box in the Shared
    Lists dialog box.
  2. Click the embedded object one time.
  3. On the Edit menu, click <type> Object (where <type> is the
    object type, such as Document) and then click Open or Edit.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products
listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem
and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it
becomes available.
