A user has exported a report from EPOS software to excel, the spreadsheet is around 10,000 rows and 30 columns in size. The aim is to delete columns, and then filter the results in a pivot table. However, when trying to do this, an error occurs saying there is not enough memory. The laptop has 8GB RAM and 4 is being used at most whilst using excel, Office 2016 32-bit is installed. No other user programs were running. How can I get around this?
