Excel hangs when manipulating large spreadsheets
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I am running an updated version of Excel 2008 (version 12.2.3) on an Intel Core 2 Duo iMac (4GB memory, 320 GB hard drive w/165 GB available). When I am working with a moderate sized workbook (17 MB, 21,000 rows x 26 columns) of data Excel will hang when I attempt to copy and paste sections of the spreadsheet or attempt to copy a function across all the rows of the spreadsheet. The files were originally xlsx files. I saved them to xlsb files but am still having the same problem. Activity monitor shows that E...Excel bug: conditional formatting
When using conditional formatting with more than more
formula, the formatting ceases to go through all
conditions once one condition becomes true.
This isn't the same behavior as when cell values are used.
This to me is a bug, but if this is intended, it should
at least be an option to continue through all conditions.
The behaviour is the same when cell values are used. For example:
Condition 1: Cell Value Is greater than 10 Format: Bold
Condition 2: Cell Value Is greater than 20 Format: Red
Condition 3: Cell Value Is greater than 30 Format: Italic

your private portfolio in Morningstar or similar sites?

I have a date cell that I need to apply conditional formatting to when
the date is now one year later.
Example: A4 contains the date 1/1/2007 and today's date is in cell F2

like the font to change so I'll know that date is older than one year
from today's date.
