    It's simple

    Open Excel.
    Enter a few numbers.
    Create a Graph.
    Select Points.
    Select 2nd one.
    Crash!

    AFAIK this only happens on Surface 3 Pro, with Office 365 x64 Pro Plus
    EDIT: This does NOT happen on windows 10! Only 8.1

    Thanks for the lesson but I don't care to learn how to crash Excel. I'll just keep using Excel as I always have on my 3 Surfaces.

    If you don't care why take the time?

    It's always interesting to learn of hardware specific bugs - it might not be a bug many run into but still, nice to know.

    Sorry....I can't replicate this bug, I create graphs in Excel multiple times of week and I tend need to format and change things. What version of Excel (32bit or 64bit)? What plugins do you have installed?

    Thats what i wanted to hear!
    I'm not the only one with this Problem, some one else reported this first!
    So i wondered how many other are conflicted with this.

    It should be 64Bit Office 365 Pro Plus

    Windows 8.1 itself should be up to date.
    i do have the i5-8gb-256gb version.

    No one can reproduce this issue?

    I have a Windows 8.1 Surface Pro 3 and a Windows 10 (Build 9926) Surface Pro 3, did the test on both, could crash Excel.

    Click on the "?" it will tell you if it is 64bit vs. 32bit

    which ? in Excel itself it's the same as pressing F1.

    Btw, Task manager does NOT state it as 32bit, therefore i assume it is really 64bit.

    Edit: ehhh... oh this ? right there xD

    Yeah 64 bit!

    Windows 8.1 is build
    Version 6.3.9600 Build 9600

    No crashing for me. Office 2013 Excel, 75 tabs (sheets), 42 of which are charts, some created manually, some via VBA.
    Windows 10 Technical Preview 9926 on Surface Pro 3 i7/512.
