Excel thinks your worksheet iss too large. I.E in Excel 2003 the maximum book size was

1-65536 rows, A - ZZ columns

try selecting all the columns that are unneeded, all the way to ZZ and deleting them

then try your insert operation again.

it is excel 2010

first, go select the entire column to the right of your last column of data, hold "shift" + "end" and press the right direction key.  This will select all blank rows to the right of your data, right click on one of the columns and hit delete.  Do the same for the row after your last peice of data but press the down direction key.  This should do it

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Can I just confirm that you deleted all columns after your data until column 'XFD'

and all rows after your data until row number '1048576'?

you may want to upload your file?
Darren SharplesSystems SpecialistCommented:
or could you copy all of the cells that contain your data into a new excel workbook.  See if you can then insert your column.
