Not enough memory error

I get a not enough memory error when loading a file which links to other files using HLOOKUP and MATCH formulas.
The cells containing the links end up with #NA in them until I open the linked files.

I also get a not enough memory error when I try and save said file. After clicking OK I get a message 'Unable to save external link values'.

Having said this everything does seem to work as I expect, its just a bit disconcerting and inconvenient for other users.

Any ideas what is happening and how to stop it would be gratefully received.

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Thanks for the links. I am now working on the theory that I have too many links. My lookup formula is

=HLOOKUP('N:\CONSUMABLE LISTS\Downloaded Files\[StockLevel.xls]StockLevel'!$H$1,'N:\CONSUMABLE LISTS\Downloaded Files\[StockLevel.xls]StockLevel'!$H:$H,MATCH("STQ"&$B6,'N:\CONSUMABLE LISTS\Downloaded Files\[StockLevel.xls]StockLevel'!$C:$C,0))

Would I be right in thinking that the orange bits could cause the problem?
