Can anyone help me ...please.

My computer often crashes as it tries to calculate my spreadsheets.
I have auto calculation swiched off (obviously!)and use an FTP (vision) to refresh sections at a time - however sometimes in error I pres F9 which leads to all my open workbooks being frozen for long periods or worse crashed out of(with work being lost).
Is there a way to stop calculation once it has started? Or is there a way to close one spreadsheet (the one being calculated) whilst keeing others open?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Hi Emily,

If you hit F9 by mistake hold down the Escape key for a couple of seconds - this should stop the calculation.
