    Hi @KB Tiwari

    According to your description, I suggest you try following steps.

    • Do all the workbooks encounter this issue?
      Please create a new blank workbook, save it and open it to have a check.
    • Where do you store the workbooks?
      Please copy it to other location, such as copy files from Cloud to local drive.
    • Run Excel in Safe Mode, then try opening this file.
      Safe Mode can help us troubleshoot the Add-ins. If this issue do not reproduce, please go to File > Options > Add-ins > Manage, COM add-ins > Go, clear the check boxes for any enabled
      COM add-ins, select OK.
    • Please go to File > Options > Advanced >Under General tab > Select the "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) checkbox".
    • If there is any anti-virus software on you computer, please quit it temporarily to check this issue.
