Just an update for this thread. The latest Microsoft update to Excel 2016 has caused these issues and we are investigating further.
Anyone affected can rollback the update by using the following in a command prompt:

pushd %programfiles%\common files\microsoft shared\clicktorun
officec2rclient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.8730.2127

Thanks @BetAngel. I have also been suffering from this problem - although only twice I think, but in both cases I had to close my spreadsheet and reopen it.
I only registered for the BetAngel forum yesterday (although I have been playing with automated Excel spreadsheet betting for a couple years now), and have already benefited from reading the forum.
I have restored back to the previous version of Excel so hopefully I won't continue to have problems.
Do I need to do something to prevent Excel automatically updating itself again?
Thanks

In Excel 2016, if you click on 'File' and then 'Account', there's a button labelled 'Office Updates' where you can choose whether to allow updates or not.

As has been mentioned, the issue arises from the latest Microsoft (Feb) update of Excel. I've rolled back my version to the previous (Dec) update and all works well again.

Thanks to the Bet Angel technical bods for pointing me in this direction ... I'm sure they'll have a 'fix' in due course.

Perfect!.
Thanks.
And I can confirm that I didn't have any problems today after rolling back to the previous version.
