The above error message apperas when i try and get excel to throw out 40k rows of formula in 6/7 different sheets.

So the solution is to throw out less, e.g. 10k

Can someone explain what is happening here, why cant excel keep doing what it is doing, is it a memory problem, i have auto calc turned off, is there any other solutions

Many thanks
Seamus
