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,

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.

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