Large File Takes Long Time To Open/Save

May 19, 2008

I have a large Excel 2007 file, around 60.000KB. 54.000KB are due to one of the worksheets where I have 8760rows x 160columns with data. The calculation time is not a problem, it is very fast, it only takes 2/3 seconds. The problem is when I open or save the file, it takes around 2 minutes... it is not too much, but it becomes too long when one has to open and save it several times. It there any trick to decrease the time when openning or saving an excel file??

Excel File Takes Long Time To Save

Jan 20, 2014


Excel takes about 10 minutes in the saving process. When I say 10 minutes, I mean, the excel screen freezes (says not responding) for about 10 minutes, then it actually saves at the very end in the normal time any other file would take as you watch the progress bar go forward.

I know many of the common answers and have tried. reducing the calculation time (which in turn reduces the saving time).

But in my circumstance, the calculation takes a very reasonable amount of time, and you see the progress % going forward.

- I would say I have about 2000 rows, and 15 columns.
- They have sumifs formulas.
- They link to a different workbook.
- The workbook I am working on saves to the network
- the source of my sumifs are also in the same folder on the network
- the recalculation takes about 10 seconds at most
- i have turned off recalculate before saving, it is all on manual calcs

- when i hit save, there are no calcs being performed
- there are no macros in the workbook
- there are only about 2 names in the name manager
- then it freezes for about 10 minutes.
- then the progress bar starts moving then it saves.

What is it doing in those 10 minutes?

1 more item to note, when I break the links to the workbook and thereby removing the sumifs formulas, its a snap.

Why does the existence of the sumifs extend saving time? I would completely understand if it elongated calculation time, but if calculation is off, then why does it even worry about it when saving?

Frequency Formula Takes Long Time To Calculate

Feb 12, 2010

I am using the below formula to distinctly count the number of customers that match the criteria that I have in Cells C7 and B10. The data is in a separate worksheet, that I am showing Named Detail of which will be changing on a monthly basis, so a pivot table does not want to be used. The detail data ranges from row 7-40,000, and the file is currently 8610KB's, and can potentially grow.

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Detail!$A$7:$A$40000=C$7,IF(Detail!$B$7:$B$40000=$B10,IF(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000<> "",MATCH(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000,Detail!$D$7:$D$40000,0)))),ROW(Cust)-MIN(ROW(Detail!$D$7:$D$40000))+1),1))

This formula works but takes an excessive amount of time for one caluclation, and I need this for multiple column and row critera. So, can this calculation be changed in order to get the same result with faster calculation time? I am using Excel 2003.

Spreadsheet Taking A Long Time To Open

May 28, 2009

I have a couple shreadsheets I have created, one is for Purchase order's and has 4 different sheets. with one sheet holding addresses linked a drop down menu in the first sheet, all in the same workbook. Also there is a macro within this sheet to print to a specific printer, and a specific number of copies when CTRL p is pressed. The total file size is approx 9 mb. Opening this file takes approx 30 to 45 seconds. There are no links to any outside files, only links within the workbook itself.

The second File I have recently started having problems with (Our Quotation log) is A workbook containing 3 sheets, 2 sheets independant and one sheet linked to the second that Summarizes the first and also has cels to enter information on the person the quotation has come from. I have this sheet formatted as a table so I can sort by name etc when doing followups.

This workbook also takes approx 30 to 45 seconds to open, and on occasion longer. All workbooks are stored on my computer. The PO workbook has had the problem since I created it, although the Quotation log workbook has only had the issue this week.

Workbooks Take Long Time To Activate When Vb Editor Is Open

Mar 17, 2007

I have the VB Editor open and am manually activating different workbooks in Excel (with 20/25 modules each), the VB Editor goes through a process of maximising each and every module in the workbook I have selected before I can edit any code or, indeed, do anything in the workbook. This process takes about 8-10 seconds every time I select a different workbook in excel! I have played around with the settings "Full Module View" in the options section of the VB editor, but to no effect.

Takes Too Long ‘calculating Cells’

Aug 3, 2006

This code is taking way too long to display the actions that it executes. It didn’t used to be that way. I was wondering if anyone knows why this may be. The Excel file is large – over 8 MB.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Const WS_RANGE As String = "N:N"
Dim Cmnt
On Error Goto ws_exit:
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then
With Target
If .Row > 3 Then
If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "" Or Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "O" Or Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "H" Then
Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 0
End If
If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "C" And Me.Cells(.Row, "O").Value = "DR" Then
Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 39
End If
If Me.Cells(.Row, "N").Value = "C" And Me.Cells(.Row, "O").Value = "HJB" Then
Me.Cells(.Row, "A").Resize(, 26).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
End If.....................................

File Too Large To Open?

Mar 16, 2013

my colleague did something to one of our files and it is now 845918 kb. I transferred it to a flash drive and then to my hard drive but now I cant open it to see what is wrong. Is there a trick to opening this up? When it was opened on her computer it wouldn't let me add any tabs or move tabs. I think I unprotected it but that didn't change anything.

So Large File That Excel Cannot Open It...

May 4, 2009

I have a file that became too big due to phantom bloat, unused range saved by Excel and all that kind of reasons. Thank to previous posts on that board tackling that issue, I was able to find how to proceed to reduce the file back to its normal size.

But I did so in a beta file (test file). The real file has become so big (103MB!) that Excel cannot even open it anymore! The file contains archive info that we do not have anywhere else.

Is there anyway then to open the file or to reduce its size without opening it (through magics...)? I just honestly don't know how to retrieve that info before deleting that file.

Open Large Txt File With Query

Sep 20, 2006

I have a large text file (greater than 64k lines) which I need to import into excel. I only need anything imported from the text file that is for dates I specify. So I would like to run a line by line query and only import the lines I need.

The dates are always in position 43-50 (dd-mm-yy) in the text file itself, so the code would have to look at that section, see if the date is within the range specified and only import if it is (and then move onto the next line).

Weird File Open/Save As Behavior

Dec 12, 2005

A client of ours has one particular file that has some very strange behavior as described below. This only occurs with the one particular file and the behavior is consistent across different PC's in both their office and ours. All other Excel files in both offices work fine. Here's what happens:

- you can use Windows Explorer to copy the file between drives without
a problem (as expected)

- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then save it back to that
same drive with either the same file name or a different file name, the
file works fine (as expected)

- if you open the file in Excel on one drive then do a "Save As" to
save it to a *different* drive with either the same file name or a
different file name (in default .xls format), the new file causes
errors in Excel every time you open it as per below (weird!)

- even if you do a "Save As" and choose a different format eg Excel
97-2003 or Excel 95, the error behavior is consistent (weird!).............

Open Text File Into Worksheet & Save As .xls

May 14, 2008

I have a folder that has a bunch of text files in it with numeric names (they are store numbers 2, 3, 165, 188, etc...). I need to open those files (in excel), run a macro on them (this portion of the macro has already been created), and then save them with the same name as the txt file but in an xls format and close. It would be great to have the whole folder process automatically but I am willing to start small. Further, I'd like it to not ask for a filename, and I don't want to see the SaveAs dialog box. So far I have been able to get the macro to run through the my processing of the text file all the way to the SaveAs portion, but the code in my macro opens the SaveAs box and puts the filename of the txt file in the file name box in quotes with the txt extension. Below is the code.

Sub Macro3()
sFile = Application. GetOpenFilename( _
fileFilter:="Text Files (*.txt), *.txt", FilterIndex:=1, _
Title:="Open Workbook")
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
sFile, Origin:= _
xlWindows, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:= Array(Array(0, _
1), Array(5, 1), Array(26, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(39, 1), Array(46, 1), Array(51, 1), Array _
(58, 1), Array(75, 1), Array(87, 1), Array(91, 1), Array(97, 1), Array(99, 1), Array(111, 1) _.....................

Open .xls File From .bat DOS File & Save As .csv

Aug 27, 2009

What I would like to do is to open an excel workbook from a bat file in dos with one arguement.

so something like

start c:lacklist.xls 2315t

Once the blacklist.xls is opened I would like to have the macro to save the excel file as a csv file ignoring all the prompts and use the argurement 2315t as the directory to save it to on the j drive ie save to j:2315tlacklist.csv. Then close the workbook and continue with the rest of the commands in the bat file.

I'm guessing I have to use GetCommandLineA to read in the arguement but I can't find anything on the net that gives a clear explanation of how to use it.

Excel 2010 :: Save Open File Location?

I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.

In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.

Cannot Get (Last Save Time) From Other File

Apr 19, 2011

I have a workbook that retrieves data from a file from a URL address upon opening. Actually, I am saving the URL file to a local drive and then updating my workbook with this data. The problem is that the job that updates the URL file sometimes fails. I want to notify the user of my workbook that the data has not been update recently. I am trying to use the built in document properties (Last Save Time) but I cannot get it to work except for the workbook that has the macros in it. Is there a way to find the last save time of a workbook (from a URL address) seperate from the workbook that has the marco? Below is my current code that errors out at:

dp = Application.Workbooks("DockReportExport.xls").BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time") with and runtime error.

Sub FTP()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'Open file from URL addres to check last save time
Workbooks.Open Filename:=""
'Check if data on server has been updated in the last 15 minutes

[Code] ........

Index Small Formula Takes Forever To Save?

VBA Save File On Time Interval?

Oct 11, 2013

I have a file that sits open all the time, and performs some refresh functions every thirty minutes. I need the file to save a copy of the tab as a CSV file at a given time interval. The code below is almost there, just need to work with the time interval part. The way it should work is to open the csv, copy / paste the active sheet; then close the csv; leaving the original excel file open. I can run it, and it works, but the time interval is not triggering.

I can get the time interval to work by itself, and the save csv part to work by itself also; I need them to work together.

Sub test()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeSerial(0, 1, 0), "test"
Dim OutputFile As Workbook, InputFile As Workbook
Dim sDD As Worksheet
