Question about Microsoft Excel for PC
I am having a problem with an Excel file on an XP Home machine running Office 2003. I have an excel file that has 9 different sheets on it, each not being more than 40X40 cells. I am using an almost identical file on 15 different machines, and this is happening only on one machine. The typical file size is betweeen 200k-300k on all machines, but on this particualr machine, the size is at 10Mb. There is nothing out of the ordinary on this file. Here's where I am getting concerned though. When I open the file, which by the way seems to take about 10-15 seconds to open, (the other terminals all open instantly) and select all sheets, copy them to a new excel book, and then save that book, the file size goes back to the normal 200k-300k size. If I close everything out and open the new file, it opens instantly without the lag. WHAT CAUSES THIS!!! Thanks for your help.
You have already find the solution by copying its contents to some other file. There can be a possibility that some virus has attached itself to the said file. Use a good anti virus and update is regularly.Another possibility is that you might have many of the rows or colums which you may have not noticed.
