FMP9 hangs when trying to export file to Excel

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

9.0.3

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.8

Description of the issue

Problem: when trying to export a FMP9 file to Excel using Mac OS 10.8, the export hangs.  After forcing FP9 to Quit, the original FMP9 file is corrupted and can’t be reopened.  I get an alert message that the “file is in use” (though it obviously isn’t).  Thank God I have backups.  I’ve exported such files for years, so this exporting problem is new.  Any thoughts?

Steps to reproduce the problem

This has happened several times with all files that I tried to export from.
