I was given an Excel workbook containing 3 worksheets. The first worksheet is large - 171 columns and 732 rows - with many formulas and text. The other two worksheets are small. According to the person who asked me to review this workbook its size was always under 1 meg. Now the size is 4 megs. This person wants to know why the size increased.
I am looking for any suggestions as to why this workbook would increase in size to this extent. I looked for any duplication - did not see any.

Thank you,

Seems awfully big, for what it is.

I've got a financial model with over 80 sheets, hundreds of charts, fully macro driven which is only 6 meg.

Have you added anything to it recently, such as conditional formatting?

If you hit <end><home> where do you end up? At the end of your data or down in cell IV65536?
