Hi, guys...we're always talking about Word limitation.

I have an Excel spreadsheet being used for a configuration matrix. Right
now, it is 6.5mb in size X 23,000 rows X 11 rows. Nothing fancy, just lines
of text.

Anyone know if there is a practical size limit for Excel? I know I could
convert to Access, or even directly to an SQL table, but I want to stay in
Excel as long as possible because it fits with the model of my other tables.
BTW...with the amount of data I still have to import, that 23,000 rows could
go 20X in size before I'm done. This is for column characteristics for all
our SQL database tables on all our servers.

So, is a half million rows too cumbersome with Excel?
