Hi guys.
I've been searching through the forums, but I can't seem to find anything on the subject.
I'm using the worksheet funtion "LinEst" in VBA to make regression in a monte carlo simulation. It works just fine with a low number of simulations, but I would like to make 100,000 simulations and then I get a type mismatch error message from the worksheetfunction.linest. I figured out through trial and error that the error occurs, when I try to do more than 65536 simulations. Doing a quick search on google I found out that 65536 was the maximum number of rows in previous versions of Excel. I use 2007, but it seems that the LinEst function hasn't been updated to handle the larger number of rows in Excel 2007. Does anybody know how I can resolve this issue or have any other piece of advice?

I need to import a csv file that has more than 65536 rows of data and 20
columns, is there a way of setting up a vba macro so that once the 65536 has
been reached, the continuation moves onto the next sheet?
I am having trouble setting the number of rows equal across my spreadsheet. For example i have about 2000 records in column b and there should be that many rows in column d...however there are zero's goin all the way down my sheet (to file 65536). What i want to do is write something in vb so set number of rows in column b and make that many rows in all the other columns. It has to be variable because across my 3 spreadsheet pages the number of files varies depeding on the amount of information that i import. I have been working on this for a few days and it seems to me it should be a simple solution but I can't find it...thanks for any help you could give

Hi
I have a 10MB .csv file having some 200,000+ rows and 3 columns.
I obviously can open the file in any other plain text editor.
But when I open this in MS Excel 2003, I get the msg File Not Loaded Completely.
The details are
Quote:
This error is usually encountered when an attempt to open a file with more than 65,536 rows or 256 columns is made. Excel is limited to 65,536 rows of data and 256 columns per worksheet. You can have many worksheets with this number of rows and columns...
So how would I go abt saving this entire .csv file as .xls ? The latter part (after 65536) is getting truncated.
Is there any solution to this ?
Thanks
I am working w/Excel 2007, and the maximum number of rows available is defaulting to the older excel 2003 allowable rows of 65536, instead of the over 1 million rows. I'm looking for where the default is maintained, and haven't had any luck. Any ideas?
Hello guys, I need to know is there a way to have Excel Go beyond 65536 when generating from other files? I heard there's a method where it creates a new sheet when the 65536 is filled up but I'm using these data for analysis, so i'd need to plot graphs etc so is it possible to plot 1 graphs for all the data gathered in few worksheet?
Anyone can tell me why Excel limited the max rows to 65536?

I've got several workbooks with more than 65536 rows. When I try to open it in excel, i am informed via popup message that it will not open a document with more than 65536 rows. (They are in CSV format). It tells me to try to open it in word and then copy it into excel. Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there an efficient way to circumvent it with Excel 2003 and microsoft word? What should I do?
Thank You,

Hi, Can anybody tell me how I can Open a large .slk extension file in Excel? When I try open the file I get the following error:
Can not Open Record 786438
Continue Reporting Each Error?
I select no And Excel Reports:
Excel can not convert some of the cells. The total number of errors found is 1128928.
The spreadsheet opens with 65536 rows of info.
However, I think becuase Excel only has 65536 rows all the data has not been imported to Excel from the .slk file.
Any idea how i can open the file displaying all the info?
Thanks

In a blank Excel 2003 workbook, on sheet 1, I entered the number 123 in cell
A1 and in cell R50. My used range thus was A1:R50 and my last cell was R50.
I hid the rows and columns beyond this area, i.e., rows from 51 to 65536 and
columns form S to IV. When I unhid the rows and columns after using goto
A65536 and IV1, cell R65536 became the last cell. Even after deleting the
rows and columns that I had previously hidden using delete entire row/column
from the edit menu and then saving the sheet, the last cell continued to be
at R65536. The file size too had increased from 13.5 kb to 1.42 mb.
I have observed that I am unable to reset the last cell using the above
method if I have hidden a really large number of rows right upto row 65536,
say, over 35000 rows. Is there some other work around for such a situation?
Hi i need have 50 000 data in one column.. so meaning 50 000 rows flowing down.. excel has the limit to 65536 rows..

Hi
How can we put in data on more than the limit for excel  65536 rows. I don't want to put them in another worksheet coz I have to link this with another one using vlookup which is very convenient for a single table
please help.

I cannot find a way to have the following formula automatically increment the row number when I drag it down a column. I do not want to take a different approach. This formula works very well for what I am doing but I have to drag it down 60 rows in a column and do it for several colums and I do not want to hand change it every time. Also, note that I cannot use ROW() because it is reporting data from a different row that the formula is in.
Example:
=INDEX($F$3:$F$65536,(MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,$F$3:$F$65536) 59 ))
What I want is to drag down a column and have it do the following:
=INDEX($F$3:$F$65536,(MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,$F$3:$F$65536) 59 ))
=INDEX($F$3:$F$65536,(MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,$F$3:$F$65536) 58 ))
=INDEX($F$3:$F$65536,(MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,$F$3:$F$65536) 57 ))
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have been banging my head against the wall on this one. Thanks.
As I know the number of the rows in one sheet in excel is 65536. The question is can we increse the rows of the sheet more than 65536.
Hi
I was going to start work on creating a macro to compare two sets of data for matches.
I downloaded the csv file from our CRM system (this is the file I would be comparing against)
When trying to bring it into Excel it states "File Not Loaded Completely" because the csv produces more that 65536 rows of data.
My question is is it possible to produce a macro that examines the csv file directly avoiding the 65536 problem in excel ?
If that is not possible the second question is :
Is it possible to write a macro that would compare data in several workbooks at the same time ?
Any guidance on this is appreciated.
Cheers

Using Excel 2003 I have a macro to run the Text Import Wizard.
How do I code the error trap and reporting prior to terminating the macro when the file to be imported exceeds the maximum allowed number of rows, 65536.
Your help is appreciated.
Can I make excel add more than 65536 rows?
Hi All
I'm struggling to import data into Excel 2003 from a text file which will produce more than 65536 rows of data...
Normally when this occours I use a routine that has served me well in the past from, http://www.cpearson.com/excel/ImportBigFiles.htm but it's not working for me this time.
The format of the file appears to be both TAB and , (comma) delimited, when I try to import the file from the 'Data > Import External Data' and select 'TAB' and / or 'Comma' as the delimeters the file imports fine up to the row limit.
When I tried to use the code linked to above the results where just one row of data upto Column IV and nothing else. (It should only produce two columns of data)
I changed the line;
Code:
SplitChar = ","
to
Code:
SplitChar = vbTab
And this gave me an Out of Memory error on the section;
Code:
If Colndx + C_START_COLUMN
