I have been using Excel 2010 for months now, and just yesterday I started getting the error "Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications." when trying to open a file I work with every day. Now this file is rather large (6.5MB), but until yesterday I could have multiple things open and not have the problem. Also, the file does open after clicking ok on the message, but it does not operate completely properly. The file has over 200 tabs of info, with about 300 rows and 50 columns worth of data on each. There are a few macros, but nothing complex. Could this file be too large, or have become unstable? How do I tell if this is a file problem, or a system problem? This is a very important file, so if anything, I would like to find out how to retain the information in the file.

Thanks!
