Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. -- But its a small file just 17K records, and just trying to sort it.  This laptop has 4GB of ram.  No way it does not have enough available RAM.   Any ideas?

maybe it's a corrupted file - have you tried copying the problem file, and creating a new excel document, but use paste special and just pasting values and no operations?
