Before I install the 64 bit version, I attempted to chack a few other things. I opened the task manager and while viewing the process tab, I opened my Excel file. Once the file loaded, this is the allocation displayed in task manager:
This seemed reasonable considering the size of the Excel file (33Mb). Without changing anything, I clicked save to make sure it was working properly. While viewing the process, I watched the allocation climb, substantially. when it completed, this is what the process displayed:
Continuing to click the save button, without changing anything, continued to increase the memory allocation until the error message was displayed:
Closing Excel and re-openeing the file resets the memory allocation back to normal, which is a popular solution to this issue in the forums.
I did check the same issue using Excel 2007 and the memory allocation releases after each save.
I can see how installing the 64 bit version of Excel can correct this issue, and with 12Gb of Ram, I will probably use this method until I can get this fixed.
