error: The operation you are about to perform affects a large number of cells and may take a significant amount of time to complete.   Excel cannot complete this task with available resource.  choose less date or close other applications.

Hi Larissa,

It sounds as if your computer is short of resources.  Is the excel file particularly large?  Do your have lots of spreadsheets open?  What other software do you have running?  Have you tried the suggestion of closing other applications?  Have you tried shutting down and restarting your computer?
