I have a workbook that containts many fomulas and it take a lot of time to open it. It seems that Excel run a lot of calculation when the file gets open. Is there a way to stop whatever is doing ???

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Good afternoon tiguil

Sure is! Go to Tools > Options, Calculation and then open your workbook.

Thereafter, just press F9 to recalculate.

the workbook is set on manuel calcul. However, it still takes a lot of time to open it. What would cause the workbook to be so slow to open.

Hi tiguil

Could be a number of things.

How big is the file?
Is it a network file and is this newtwork known for being sluggish?
Are there any links to external workbooks in this file? Where are they linking to?
Is there a macro firing on the workbook opening that is slowing everything down?

You don't have to answer these questions, they are just a few of the many (more popular) reasons as to why a workbook may be opening slowly.
