Note for speed readers: all these formulas work. This is about simplification.

This Lambda APPEARS to be causing an 8192 error and/or crashing my file, so I write to ask for suggestions how to rewrite it is in non Lambda form, unless anyone can see a reason why this Lambda can be causing this problem.

and the formula is:



and the Lambda called Allocator called from within is:



Edit:and another sub LAMBDA within is:

Apparently this file does run ok on some PC versions (at least one) of Excel. To reproduce the crash, first sort on Data sheet column O and then column A. If that does work then it just crashes shortly after or crashes on save.

This question is a focussed Lambda/formula question after several questions about these crash/8192 errors.

Here is the file, this formula is in DATA sheet Column headed Allocator, col  AI .


Changing the name LOOKUP to LOOKUPQ makes no difference. That was checking for conflicted names.

I have provided feedback to MS on all this.
