Thanks. A physical shut down does not help in my case. Import also had some problems: importing data from CSV was extremely slow. Not sure if this is a related problem. I converted everything to files which could easily read with a function based on ReadList. But exporting to XLS or XLSX is still a requirement as I want to report my data in Excel. So at this moment I am stuck with a few notebooks from I cannot get data exported the way I need.

I have had the same problem, intermitting at times, with Export, Import and other commands in a note book with specific routines. The only solution is a physical shut down. No answer as yet. Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Mathematica 9.01

I have a notebook in which I want to export a short data table with numbers and strings. Mathematica (9.01 on Windows7) hangs at the export. It does not matter whether the export is to .XLS, .XLSX or .TXT. The table is only 10 rows x 10 col of real numbers and a few strings (col. and and row headers): so only a small amount of data. Export is to the local HD. Mathematica will hang and quitting the kernel is the only solution. Deleting all output, disabling dynamics, restarting Mathematica, rebooting PC,..... it does not help. But when I construct a similar table in a blank notebook I have no issues: Export works smoothly as expected. I have not been able yet to "undress" my notebook to come to the bare problem.
Has anyone experienced such a hangup? Did you trace the origin and did you find a solution?
