Hi there!Is it just me...
Hi there!Is it just me, or MS Excel in Office 365 is much slower than in 2010 version?I've just started at a new job, and we use Office 365 as a company standard.
However I have faced some performance issues when working with large data sets in Excel. This has resulted in several crashes as well.
FYI, working with local documents, not online.
Never seen anything like it in 2010 Office.PC is ok, Intel Core i7 3.5 Ghz, 32 GB of RAM
I have autosave enabled every 5 min.Is there some properties I can tweak to make Excel a bit faster?
Or is Office 365 in fact slower than 2010?Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

In general it runs faster due to how it handles memory.

Did you notice this from the start for Excel? Since you installed it?

It was already pre-installed on my PC.
Maybe I'm just being picky.. I do often work with files 100+ MB, but it seems it should be a bit faster.

ok, 100MB in excel is quite large and if you do array based formulas it will be slower, but in no way slower then excel 2010.

How does the same file operate in excel 2010?

Didn't had a chance to test same file in 2010 Excel.
I heard from my colleague that 365 is slower than 2010, so I just wanted to confirm / debunk this theory.

It is not, on average the way it handles data and nearly always because it runs in a 64bit operating system it is faster.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
