Calc Crashing

Jason Menendez
My ods files crash nonstop. I can’t even use the product anymore. Every 2 minutes it starts recovery.

It has been happening for weeks. Please help me.

As a diagnostic: if you are using Windows, start it in Safe Mode (Google for how if you don't know) and while Windows is in that mode run Calc.  If it runs stable while Windows is in Safe Mode, then the problem is interference from some other program or driver that runs in Windows Normal Mode.

There is an outstanding bug for over 6 years: *Issue 125006*
<https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=125006> - Calc Consistently
crashing, usually with "Fatal Error - Bad Allocation"

So there is not much hope this will be solved.

As a workaround try to play with the memory settings under Tools ->
Options - Memory

Hi Jason,

Do your spreadsheets work in LibreOffice (or another ODS-compatible tool
like Microsoft Office)? If they are corrupted that would display a message
or crash as well I expect.

Cheers,

Simon
