    Excel Workbook Capacity

    Hi - I thought I'd try one more time, just in case - and . . . since I got the version wrong last time. [img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img] Does anyone know the capacity in bytes of an Excel workbook V98 for Mac? I have a user who wants to know because of a large file he has created (and continues to add to)! Thanks

    Re: Excel Workbook Capacity

    I don't run the MAC version, but copied below is the HELP entry from Excel 8.0 (Office97). While there are limits imposed by available memory, I've never seen any 'byte limit' to workbook size. I've seen posts over the years from people claiming to have workbooks into the 32Meg range.

    Program workspace specifications

    Feature Specification
    Maximum number of custom toolbars in a workbook Limited by available memory
    Maximum number of custom toolbar buttons Limited by available memory
    Maximum number of open workbooks Limited by available memory and system resources
    Maximum worksheet size 65,536 rows by 256 columns
    Column width 0 (zero) to 255 characters
    Row height 0 to 409 points
    Maximum length of cell contents (text) 32,000 characters
    Maximum length of formula contents 1,024 characters
    Maximum number of sheets in a workbook Limited by available memory (default number of sheets is 3; the maximum number of sheets in a default workbook is 255)
