I have a customer with a spreadsheet that he is not able to add rows or columns to. Further more when he opens this spreadsheet it appears to effect other Excel spreadsheets. It is not possible to add rows or columns to other spreadsheets before restarting the computer.
The customer is running Excel 2010 on a Windows 7 machine. The spreadsheet is a Microsoft Excel Worksheet (not 97-2003).
The first message you receive is that Excel is performing "a large operation" and will take a significant amount of time to complete followed by the yes and cancel options. After this an error message pops up saying "Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications"
I have tested this on both his machine and my own. Both are i5's with a fair amount of ram.
Hoping somebody has run into this issue before. Any suggestions would be appreciated
