Hi All,

I have this continual problem which is becoming quite annoying.

With excel 365 running in safe mode and Formula calculations set to manual.

On average it takes 49 seconds to insert a row into a table.

The table is 5 columns wide and at the moment 323 rows deep.

After clicking on insert row, excel kicks off the blue circle, then after a while gives the Excel Not Responding error message

Using my Acer Aspire 5 laptop, whilst in the Not Responding mode, the fan always springs into life.

Then generally at the 48 or 49 second mark, the fan stops, the row is inserted and excel automatically goes into File Save mode.

I am connected to one drive and the auto save feature is Off.

Any and all ideas as too why this happens are graciously received.

Jeff

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi All, I have this issue where Excel takes a long time to responding if I do a save or insert/delete a line in a table.

Even with Calculation set to manual, it takes an eternity.

I suspect that Excel throws up the Not Responding message because the computer has to kick into gear and do something. 100% of the time, I can hear the fan kick in and then Excel will continue with the task.

On a very frequent basis, Excel tells me that it finds error and cant save the file.

I have used the same file on a old Toshiba Satelite Laptop without any problems.

Has anybody had any issues using a Acer Aspire 5, Core i5 when using Excel 365?
I am running an 32inch Acer ED2 Series external monitor and have 20GB of RAM, using SSD hard drive.

My fault diagnosis includes....

1. Rebuilding the file from scratch
2. Reinstalled Office 365
3. In Excel, Open and Repair a file
4. At every opportunity in the code, Calculation is set to manual, Screen updating is turned off, events are turned off
5. Changing anything and everything I can find in the hardware/firmware settings to prevent the Acer from powering down
6. I was looking at whether BIOS needs an upgrade from Acer, but that requires considerable more research.


I strongly suspect there is an issue between Excel 365 and the Acer Aspire 5, Core i5.
This issue has moved from being inconvenient to critical.....
I welcome any feedback and advice that the users in this forum may have experienced that can be shared.

Regards

Jeff.
