Large Excel files

Postby manki_makam » Sun Nov 16, 2008 9:07 pm

If a large excell (xls) files end presents itself for viewing (first on search results list or scrolled to), it can take forever to completely display, thus holding up any further operation for some time. I need to be able to search these files...

Has anyone had the problem, or is there a way to get around it?

Thanks,
Ross

Ross,

Sadly this is something I used to discover too. I used to work with very large spreadsheets (with multiple tabs) and when X1 got one of these as a result, the CPU would spike and it could sometimes take up to 10 seconds before the machine was usable again.

I did report it to X1, but nothing's happened as yet.

Thanks for the commiseration Tim! Glad someone else has noted it too. I have actually asked about it in the past too.

For me, 10 secs would be a blessing - sometimes it can be more like 10 minutes... Very annoying. I've just removed the search path with those xls files in it so that X1 is usable again.
