[UW-GIS-L] Can't export xy data to shapefile

I have an Excel file (.xls) of 13443 records with 37 fields per record. I can read this file into ArcMap V9.3. However, when I try to export the xy data to a shapefile, Arc crashes. The crash occurs after the shapefile files have been created, but before data is written to them (they are all 1 KB in size).
There are no formulae in the file (only numeric and text fields).
I successfully did this export with a two-month old version of the same data file, but I cannot figure out what is different now (except some updated data items).
Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted.
