Formula Causing a Save Error Message

Guest

I've discovered that if I use a concatenate inside a vlookup, I get an error
message whenever I try to save the file. "Excel cannot complete this task
with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications". I
know that this is NOT the case because I can reboot, open nothing but excel
and get the same message.

If I delete this formula, I can save the file without the error message.

Any suggestions?

=VLOOKUP(CONCATENATE(A36,C32),'[Division Raw Data.xls]Adjusted OH by
Div'!$E:$F,2,FALSE)

Maybe it's trying to recalculate and fails.

have you tried using a smaller range than all of columns E:F:

=VLOOKUP(A36&C32,'[Division Raw Data.xls]Adjusted OH by Div'!$E1:$F999,2,FALSE)

(use a row number large enough--but not too large <vbg>.)

(untested--I don't think I've ever seen that error while saving a file.)

Thanks a million Dave. It worked like a charm. $E1:F$16000
