    WXP and Excel (XP & Exl 2003)

    I am working on a Dell Latitude D620 Laptop, with a Centrino Duo processor and a gig of ram, configured by our syst admin. Not much room for me to do my own customizing (even if I knew how).

    My question is, how can I free system resources so that when I'm working on a 50mgb excel file, excel will move a little faster. The wait time is killing me [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img].

    Thnaks in advance for any advice you can provide...

    50 MB is pretty large for an Excel workbook - a delay while loading or recalculating it is to be expected.
    See Decision Models for some info and tips on optimizing Excel, and a (commercial, i.e. non-free) utility that may help finding the bottlenecks.
