Windows 7: Excel 2010 - Out of memory? Not enough resources.

30 Apr 2014   #11

Windows 7 pro, SP1 64 bit

I have a file that is displaying same symptoms

In my case this is with a small file (6.5 MB with no calculations)
This file also takes and extraordinarily long time to open (30-90 secs)
The problem is occurring on several computers that I have tried (including with Windows 8 & Excel 13)
I'm not even able to delete 1 row of data (30-40 columns with data)
I have other bigger files with pivot tables etc. and these have no problem.
This seems to be a file issue, but I have been unable to resolve it.

64 bit edition seems to be an overkill as the standard (recommended) version should do this easily.
"this additional capacity is needed only by those Microsoft Excel users who require Excel spreadsheets that are larger than 2 gigabytes (GB). "

The suggestions by Microsoft support don't have any effect

I have noticed over that last year or more that excel seems to struggle with memory, especially with bigger files.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated

UN-Check Preview pane and Details pane in all Office programs

Microsoft suggested workaround is to go to:

Windows Explorer --> Layout ---> uncheck preview pane and details pane.
OUTLOOK --> add attachment --> layout --> uncheck here too
Excel --> open document --> layout --> uncheck these here too.
