KBA-01686: Microsoft Excel Freezes at 74%


When loading a Microsoft Excel workbook, such as BFA or SOV, the workbook stalls at 74% Set Index.


Microsoft Excel Security Update KB3178690 introduced a problem that affected certain Microsoft Excel workbooks. The problem affected about 15% of workstations when running an Excel application that recalculates workbooks with hidden worksheets. This includes BFA and potentially SOV.

Microsoft Excel update KB3191855 fixes the issue.
