You may be running out of RAM, or hitting other limits, depending on how many other Worksheets are open, etc.See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/excel-specifications-and-limits-HP010073849.aspx for limits on specs it doesn't indicate a set formula limit but you may be hitting one of the other ones

You need to check which limit out of those shown in above link you have reached and then try to decrease it. If possible please share your file with me so that I can also check more about it.

With Microsoft Edge open to Just Answer and Microsoft Excel and the _Owls Nest Booth #104 open, Task Manager indicates I am only using 2.3 GB (33%) of the 6.9 GB of memory on my computer.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
In Microsoft Excel, File, Options, Formulas, Calculation Options, I "enabled iterative calculation" and set the "maximum iterations" to 32,700. The maximum limit is 32,767. I saved the file, closed Excel, and restarted my computer. When I reopened the file, still no calculation.

Click the File tab, click Options, and then click the Formulas category.Do the following:To recalculate all dependent formulas every time you make a change to a value, formula, or name, in the Calculation options section, under Workbook Calculation, click Automatic. This is the default calculation setting.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I did F9, Shift+F9, Ctrl+Alt+F9, and Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F9, the newly entered formulas did not enter a calculation result. The default calculation setting is set to Automatic. I have also verified that based on the referenced cells in the formulas there should be a numerical result. Have you looked at the file I sent? Look at cell CD209. This is where the problem starts.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Were the changes I made to the formula options settings, "enabled iterative calculation" and set the "maximum iterations" to 32,700, appropriate?
Microsoft Office Technician: Bhavik Joshi, Computer Software Engineer replied 2 months ago
I don't think we should set this limit. I will look into your excel deeply and get back to you.

Can you give few examples and point me where to look at specifically so that I can check if after doing changes it is working ?

Look at cell CD209 in the worksheet file I sent. This is where the problem starts.
Microsoft Office Technician: Bhavik Joshi, Computer Software Engineer replied 2 months ago
Ok. I will get back to you on this.

Hi,

I am sorry for the delay. I looked into the formula of CD209 and on my computer it is showing expected results.. You can click on formula tab and click on Evaluate Formula button. It is showing expected result. I tried to copy formula of other cell into it and it calculating results correctly over there. I don't think the problem here is with the number of formulas you have used or any issue in exceeding the maximum limit.

I would recommend you to use default setting of excel ad do not set any external parameters.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The settings were the default settings when this began so I still I don't have an answer to this problem.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What does your computer have as the default settings for formulas?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No, I am not. The formula in CD209 was copied into the cells below CD209. The results was "-". The cell numerical format is "Accounting" therefore the "-" equals zero.
Microsoft Office Technician: Bhavik Joshi, Computer Software Engineer replied 2 months ago

Click the File tab, click Options, and then click the Formulas category.

In the Calculation options section, under Workbook Calculation, click Automatic. This is the default calculation setting.

This is what I see in my computer. After copying formula of row 207 .

Ask Your Own Microsoft Office Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I do not want to see 0 (zero) in these cells. The "-" is correct based on the Accounting numerical format.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I figured out what is causing the formula to result in "-" (zero). The two date cells referenced in the formula (Fxxx and Gxxx) are correctly formatted for a date. However, even though the cells appear to be empty, apparently they are not. I highlighted cell F209, hit the Space Bar and then hit Enter. I did the same for cell G209. The result was the correct calculation of the formula. I have done this for all "blank" cells in column F and G. All formulas correctly calculated.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
This discussion is over.
Microsoft Office Technician: Bhavik Joshi, Computer Software Engineer replied 2 months ago

Yes right, Problem was not with the amount of formula's it was in the formula itself.
