First, let me say this. I am a novice with Excel. I'm not sure about how to phrase the question, but here goes. I have a worksheet with formulas in each cell, starting in E2:CX6000. Whenever I insert new data in cells A2:D6000. The recalculation process begins and takes a couple of hours to finish. Is there a way to speed this process up? I know Excel can only handle so much without bogging down. Thanks for all suggestions.

Excel Facts

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
If you dont need to recalculate after each data entry change the calculation to manual.

For more info and if this helps, start here. Follow up w/ more questions on how to change if needed.

As far as the number of formulas and speeding it up.... get a faster computer w/ more memory. This is not a "cute" answer. Just a practical one.

Try splitting your workbook up into individual process and then copy the data to a master file once the calculations are complete. This can be done w/ various lookup functions/methods.

We can help you with all this.
