    Why insufficient resources message?

    I am using Windows 7 and recently upgraded to Office Excel 2010. When I have 2 or 3 workbooks open and then open another, a message comes up insufficient resources. I have 4GM of RAM. The same problem occured when I had Office 2007. Do you think that the RAM could be faulty or the proceesor needs to be changed. The PC is only +- 6 month old

    Your assistance in sorting out this problem will be most appreciated

    It probably depends on the size of the work sheets. Do you have office 2010 32 Bit or the 64 Bit version? Most people use the 32 Bit version, but those using very large spreadsheets might need the 64 Bit version. Have you changed the virtual memory amount? Usually this message indicates a lack of Ram or virtual memory.

    The above article does show so very good info.
