After pasting a copied column of cells from a table with filtered rows where the filter resulted in a large number of separate blocks of rows, the response time was very slow. A side benefit is you will focus on your Excel work. Additionally, If you're running 64-bit Windows, this change is applied automatically. This improves support for actions that use lots of memory.

This re-write appears to have affected memory usage. If only one workbook is causing problems, you may have a file bloat problem. Now this is good news.

Performance was dependent on the count of all rows between the top visible row and the bottom visible row. Try unhiding all rows and columns and then doing the copy and paste. The workbook contains 200 worksheets, each containing 200 formulae, and the formulae link each sheet to every other sheet.
This obviously ties up a lot of memory and slows down Excel tremendously. Instead of advising that one can not do such an action, Excel says either out of memory or out of resources. Some cases of out of memory or resources are caused by doing a copy and paste that is not valid. Found this thread looking for a solution to my problem. You may also encounter , where certain tasks such as printing or inserting graphics causes the memory Excel uses to increase, so that you eventually run out of memory and have to close Excel. We are also having the same issue even with small files.
This will minimize out-of-memory error messages. Excel 2010, 2013 and 2016 are available in 2 versions: 32-bit 2 Gigabytes of virtual memory and 64-bit 8-Terabytes which is 8000 Gigabytes of virtual memory. For Excel 2007 the limit has changed again, and you need a more specialised tool to track useage of virtual memory, and Application. However, if obj is not needed anymore earlier in the sub, setting it to nothing will free the memory earlier. If you start Task Manager at the same time you can see the memory utilization go down drastically after each save.
As far as how to get 64bit, again it is a difficult question to answer. When I switched to the the 64-bit version the 'available resources' error stopped. However, have a backup if you do.

The 64-bit version of Windows enables a larger addressable memory capacity, and Excel is designed to take advantage of that capacity. Any idea what might be happening, how to fix other than getting rid of Office 2016 and going back to 2013? There are caveats and details that I won't go in to here. Remove all unused sheets, unused Cell, conditional formatting, coloring, validation, filter, e. We suspect this problem is solved with Excel 2003 as we did 100 page setup changes from a recorded macro and memory usage did not change.
Minimize use of condition formats whenever possible. If you have a lot of Windows applications appearing in your system tray, remove any system tray application that are not essential. I had an issue similar to this when users copy and pasted data from sap into excel that resulted in a lot of blank rows after the last row that actually contained data. I am trying to recreate workbooks that I currently have running in Excel 2010 but when I try to build the pivot table I get a message that says I am out of memory and need to switch to 64 bit excel.
