Windows 7: Excel 2010 spreadsheet taking up almost 1gb of memory

Excel 2010 spreadsheet taking up almost 1gb of memory

So I have a .xlsx spreadsheet of about 1.5mb taking up nearly 1gb of memory.

Simple workbook consisting of about 5 sheets with standard formatting and some colors.

I deleted all unnecessary rows and columns, ran 449898_intl_x64_zip hotfix, and rebuilt Excel registry and managed to get down from 1gb to 500mb memory being used.

Anything else I can try?

Thanks!

Can you open this file on another Windows 7 computer?

Unfortunately, no as this is the only PC in the household that has Office. Right back up to 1gb after viewing all 5 sheets in the workbook...

Have you tried making a fresh spreadsheet?

Copy/paste the exact info in, then save it and check the RAM consumption.

If the test spreadsheet takes up too much RAM, then delete it & create a new one. This time, type in data that is close to the original spreadsheet. ...check the RAM consumption.
