Dear all,

I am working on a dynamic, formula heavy spreadsheet that will have data added and removed to it by various users on different systems. To test it, I filled the 1meg file up with 1500 rows of data, thus inflating it to 1.5meg. Now, having removed this data, the spreadsheet has not shrunk down to it's original size. Moreover, it still takes as long to calculate two rows of data as it did to calculate 1500... Is this right? Can it be reversed?

Best,
Max

No, I tell a lie... The calculations are back to normal. But the file is still enormous...
