Hello,

I'm using Excel to develop a model that follows 10,000 individuals over 700 days to see how they transition between different states. For each individual on each day there is a calculation to determine their state. The model worked for 3,000 individuals but now it is locking up and I'm getting 'not enough space' and other memory error messages.

Does anyone have any advice as to how I can configure my computer to handle a large spreadsheet such as this one? I tried increasing the size of my virtual memory but I'm still having problems.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
