Thread: Manual Calculation

  1. #1


    I have made a large file with many formulas, about 18 worksheets and some macros. I am using the manual calculation and when necessary I press F9 to calculate.

    It takes time to calculate and it gets to about 40% then stops and it still says 'Calculate' on the bottom of the screen, prompting me to press F9. I press F9 again but the same thing happens. As a result I am not confident that the file is calculating fully.

    I understand it will probably be because its a big file (6.5MB). But does anyone know why this is so? Does anyone have a remedy?

    Hmmm. I recently had a VERY large file (i;m talking 30-40 mins to calculate!!!) With no problems - except the time of course!

    The only tim ei experience probs is when a key is pressed halfway through a recalc. If you are not doing this then maybe something is running behind the scenes. Dunno if this is possible but maybe there is a VBA procedure perhaps activating on cell change. Try looking in VBA editor.

    Thanks for the help.

    It may have something to do with the VBA. Is there anyway to go inside Visual Basics and pin point the problem, if there is one? I am not an expert on Macros and only created these ones using the Record Macro function
