Running out of memoery Excel 2010

Hi,

A user who uses excel a lot, has few different excel files opened. When they try to move data from one spreadsheet to another, it gives an error that "excel is running out of memory", and it does not let the user complete the task.

I have checked com add ins, nothing unusual running.

Is there anything which can be done to resolve this?

Thank you

If you need to work with large files then open fewer files at once or install the 64 bit version of Office or install more RAM.
that is the limitation of 32 bit version .

Which architecture are you running of MS Office?  If 32-bit, can you reinstall the 64-bit version?

Hi,
