Whenever I input the = it automatically closes excel.  I can input a formula e.g. =if(....... but excel won't allow me to input = then a cell reference e.g. =C3.  As soon as I try and do this it closes.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled excel and also checked that I am using the current version.  I don't have any add ins or macros so am at a loss as to why it has suddenly started to do this.  Any help gratefully received.

Thanks

Graham

Is that for any workbook and is that in safe mode as well?
