Opening and calculating an Excel File takes very long (Size 750 KB around 4000 Rows and 30 Cols) RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Problem: The file was generated with EPPlus but also after changing the file manually with Excel and after a save as it takes again around 2 Minutes to open it. There are quite some calculations in the excel sheet and refreshing them takes around 20 Seconds.

    Is there a posibility to find out why Excel takes so long to open and calculate this file and what it is doing during this time?

    Is there some kind of log I can switch on to trace where excel is spending the time?

    (Other excel files are opening within seconds. Also smaller Files < 300 Rows generated with the same function open very fast...)
