I’m running Excel from Office 98, on a G4 Mac with 1G of memory, in OS 9.2. There’s a 5.6M file that I use every day, and I’ve started getting out-of-memory alerts when doing sorts. I have to quit the application and re-open the file, then it’s fine for a while, except that sorts take longer than they used to. I’ve raised the Excel memory to 50M, and it’s still happening.
Am I approaching a maximum file size for this version of Excel? Would an upgrade solve the problem? (I haven’t upgraded, because I don’t need any of the new features, but I will if it’ll solve this problem.)
