1) In Excel 2003 I'd run Detect and Repair.
2) Have you gotten every SP (SP1 and SP2) offered for Office (and Excel
2003) to date? Also have you applied all the updates considered important
for Excel 2003? http://office.microsoft.com
3) If necessary use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility as directed
highlighting every Office 2003 related item on the list and removing them
(this removes files and .dlls that may be corrupt and interfere with
uninstall and reinstall of Office).
4) Reinstall Office 2003.
You can also post on the MSFT excel groups found by putting the term Excel
in group search if you need more info.
