Our acconting Department uses Excel extensively.  They continue to receive this error with slightly complicated Excel sheets: Excel cannot complete this task with available resources.  Choose less dataor close other applications.
I have read all of the MS Answer forums, there are some fixes for some people, but not for all.  Does anyone know how to make this disapear forever?

You are giving us almost no information to work with, here.


What is the hardware on your computers? Processor and RAM, in particular.


You say "slightly complicated" Excel sheets. What does that mean? How many cells have formulas? What kinds of formulas? Are there any Macros involved? If you disable macros, does the problem go away?

Programming is a branch of mathematics.
