We have a user running Excel 2010 32bit and she is experiencing an issue when she attempts to refresh pivot table information.

It takes at least 10-20 minutes "reading date", then eventually failes with the following error message.:

"Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data, or close other applications"

I have tried disabling add-ins, closing other applications, ending intensive processes in task manager, disabling hardware acceleration in Excel, restarting the PC, and even switching calculation mode to manual with no success.

Our last solution would be to rip out Office 32bit and install 64bit, but we were wondering if there are ANY other fixeses someone may know of that I haven't tried yet.

Attached is a screenshot of the error message.
