Excel 2010 - How to break when Excel calculates formula too long

Dear Experts,

Before of the question I would like to confirm, that I need these 'Automatic calculation' settings on the picture in Excel for my daily work and that is set:
Settings
But could you please advise with some tips, how to stop Excel when calculates too long a formula?

I have tried pressing ESC, or Ctrl - Break, they did not help, only the Ctrl - Alt - Del and closing Excel, but that is not too practical

Thanks in advance,
LVL 1

Excel calculation can be interrupted by continuing to work on the spreadsheet. When you stop editing the recalculation resumes automatically. For detailed explanation see:

Also if you have lots of formulas on the sheet, it's better to set the calculation options to manual.
And you may use F9 ( to calculate all the worksheets in all the open workbooks) or Shift+F9 to calculate the Activesheet only.
