    I notice in LibreOffice that a graph didn't look right at all.
    I'll have to try OpenOffice.
    Graph looks the same in both.
    Someone stated that Office XP is no longer supported but this is not an Excel problem, it's a Windows problem.

    LibreOffice & OpenOffice modify the colors of the Excel graphs.
    An easier 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

    OpenOffice and Libre are quite similar imo. I haven't gotten around to check out my existing graphs made in Office XP (Excel) yet, something to look forward to....

    I found the update that killed Excel 2002.
    Uninstall & now it will work.
    Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2002 (KB2541003).

    Turn off Update Options for other MS products or it will install again.

    It still crashes on some files but not all of them. The way it crashes is different for different existing files. Just delete all the Office security updates from April, 2018.

    April, 2018 security updates also killed Office 2010. The KB numbers are different.

    I'll probably just move to LibreOffice.

    Thanks Comp Cmndo, it worked mostly on my Desktop but I gave up and I've installed Office 360 on both Laptop and Desktop. I had Office XP for more than 15 years so I can't grumble at that!

    Thanks for all of your help on this.....

    Excel is working now, I suspect a Defender updated was the culprit. Or Not?
