Does anyone know the maximum amount of rows and/or columns that excel can handle (ie- how many rows of data can excel handle? 10,000? 15,000? etc. Thanks in advance

You can check this yourself, hit [Ctrl Down] and then [Ctrl Right], you should be at cell IV65536, that is, 65,536 rows x 256 columns.

Far right is 256 cells along column IV
far down is 65536 cells down row 65536

We use ABC and 123 for easy so cells are A1 to IV65356 and any inbetween
