  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button , click Excel Options, and then click the Formulas category.
  2. In the Calculation options section, select the Enable iterative calculation check box.
  3. To set the maximum number of times that Excel will recalculate, type the number of iterations in the Maximum Iterations box. The higher the number of iterations, the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.
  4. To set the maximum amount of change you will accept between calculation results, type the amount in the Maximum Change box. The smaller the number, the more accurate the result and the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.

What is a workbook?

A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheet

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

My Excel 2007 status bar shows the words "Calculate" even though my calculation is set to automatic. From my experience with the prior version of Excel, this indicates a circular reference error....

A couple of possible causes:

Setting Workbook.ForceFullCalculation to True will cause this.

The Iteration Option is turned on and the workbook contains circular references. Turn off Iteration (Tools-->Options-->Calculation) and press F9-- it may show "Circular Reference."

AutoCAD LT 2008 (xref circular references)

The "circular reference" indicates that the xref you are pulling in is also xrefing the drawing file you are in which creates this circular reference to each other. The error message is only a warning and does not prevent you from working and saving changes. To get rid of the error message, close the primary drawing file and then open the reference drawing and DETACH the xref that is linked to your primary drawing. Save the changes and then open the primary drawing file again to see if the error was resolved.

Circular reference errer in excal file in office 2007 Problem. when i open excal seet and whant to change and save. then pc show problem? ple help me shamsherpatel

Hi shamsherpate

In order to remove this error message you need to locate and remove the incorrect references:

On the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the arrow on the Error Checking in-group button, point to Circular References, and then click the first cell listed in the submenu.

Tip You can move between cells in a circular reference by double-clicking the tracer arrows.
Review the formula in the cell. If you cannot determine whether the cell is the cause of the circular reference, click the next cell in the Circular References submenu.

Note The status bar displays the word "Circular References" followed by a reference to one of the cells contained in the circular reference.
Continue to review and correct the circular reference until the status bar no longer displays the word "Circular References."
