Large data computation

I use formulas such as vlookup or fuzzyvlookup in excel to compare two sets of data. Often times the information that I am comparing is vast and I frequently encounter not responding errors and system resource limitations that simply stop my production. The work around to-date is that I have to manually auto fill about a hundred rows at a time which can sometimes take me days to complete before I can evaluate. Is their a macro or precursor that I can use that will look to fulfill the operation in the current cell being evaluated and then move onto the next and the next until the whole thing has been evaluated to cut down on the total CPU usage that is grinding me to a halt?

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

I did eventually figure this out. I used a macro and relative reference to conduct the operation once and then set up to run again. I have to push a macro inserted button but it does run concurrently and not simultaneously. Very slick and no longer bogs down my operations.

As an alternative, have you tried setting Calculation to manual until you have finished inputting data?
