Hi there,

I work at a school district and the person who does the lunch menus does them in Excel. She is having problems with it being very slow to copy and paste. It can take several minutes. I have been able to repeat this issue on my own computer. Also, she said that the document sometimes corrupts itself. I'm not familiar with Excel, so I'm wondering if somebody could take a look at the document and see if there's anything unusual with it. I would really appreciate it! The document is here:

Either copy the menu data to a new Workbook (Excel uses workbooks/worksheets, not documents), or Create the data in Word.

I am having similar problems with a workbook. It is a larger workbook. I am using tables, when I attempt to fill down, it takes minutes to accomplish for around 200 cells.
It was not having the issue at first then seemed to get progressively worse.
I have rebooted the computer, disabled calculations, tried everything I could think of.
Recreating the workbook would take me a day to do.
Any other advice??
