I made an excell program which reads stock prices every 3 minutes. But if I let it running for a longer period, there will be warning that memory is not big enough....it is "only" 540 Mb....

Is there a way to free or empty memory that is no more used?

Hi ylijohe,

Remove all "set" variables from memory by using the following:

All variables in your sub that appear as:

set something = something else

Change to (just before your "end sub" line):

set something = nothing

end sub

There are probably many other things you can do...I'm still learning this stuff. Keep an eye on your post.

Hope it helps.
